Generous Helpings – A Giveaway!


As I’ve mentioned many times before, May is pretty much my favorite month of the year. Not only is it my birthday month, but it also brings with it a plethora of fun activities: Cinco de Mayo celebrations, the Kentucky Derby, Steeplechase, Memorial Day cookouts, and Generous Helpings!

One of the best food and wine tasting events of the year, Generous Helpings supports Middle Tennessee’s Table, Middle Tennessee’s prepared and perishable food rescue program. So not only is it fun for your tummy, but it’s also a great way to do a little good for our community.

Check out this impressive list of participating restaurants and food vendors. I mean, really, where else can you have a little taste of all of these at once?!
