Nashville Religious Communicators to Meet in Person in July 2022
The July 2022 meeting will be held in person for the first time in two years, with a visit from the Nashville Food Project, an organization whose mission is “to bring people together to grow, cook and share nutritious food, with the goal of cultivate community and relieve hunger in our city.
The Nashville Food Project was born from the idea that everyone should have access to the food they want and need. According to thenashvillefoodproject.org, “one in seven people in Nashville does not have access to enough food to maintain a healthy lifestyle” and “more than 40% of all food in our city is wasted”. Solutions to hunger require more than just donations. Poverty, unemployment, low wages and rising housing prices all contribute to the challenges faced by our city’s most vulnerable residents.
“We got to hear about the Nashville Food Project practically last year, so our chapter is excited to be able to visit and learn more about them in person,” says Julie Brinker, Communications Coordinator for the Nashville RCC and Director of community affairs for the Church of Scientology of Nashville.
The RCC has members from all faith groups and walks of life, including Baha’is, Christians, Jews, Muslims, Scientologists, Sikhs, Hindus, and more. The RCC, founded in 1929, is an association of communication professionals who work for and with a diverse group of faith-based organizations in the fields of communication, public relations, advertising and development.
The RCC provides communicators with opportunities to learn from each other. Together, CCR members promote excellence in communicating faith and values in the public space. For more information about the Religion Communicators Council, visit religioncommunicators.org/nashville-chapter.
