Friends & Farmers

Once a year in the picturesque East TN Fall season, we say “thank you” to all those who give Nourish Knoxville ongoing support. Friends & Farmers is our annual family-friendly celebration and appreciation event and our favorite way to give back and show gratitude for your support.

Whether you’ve donated to support our work, sponsored our nutrition incentive programs, supported the Local Food Guide, volunteered with us, been a vendor at one of our markets, or all of the above, you are a valuable member of the local food system, and we couldn’t do it without you! 

📣 Save the Date:
