Luke 14:12 is a non-profit soup kitchen providing free meals to the hungry and homeless of Nashville. Our mission is to address the nutritional needs of those who are inadequately fed. Each year Luke 14:12 provides over 20,000 meals to hungry individuals. We invite all who are hungry to be guests at our table.
Luke 14:12 serves lunch at noon every Tuesday and Friday in the dining room of Room In The Inn's Campus for Human Development. We are located at 705 Drexel St, Nashville, TN 37203. We are a soup kitchen that doesn't serve soup! Instead we prepare and serve delicious, nutritious meals for our guests. Each meal includes an entree, a carbohydrate, vegetables, salad, fruit, dessert and milk or tea. Meals are served dinner-style to over 240 of Nashville's homeless, hungry and working poor.
Meals are prepared by Luke 14:12's small staff, who are hired from the homeless population. Meals are served restaurant style to anyone who wants to come to our table by volunteers from church groups, agencies, businesses and individuals. Luke 14:12 is a 501(c)(3) non-profit; all donations are tax deductible and are greatly appreciated!

[Jesus] said also to the one who had invited him, ‘When you give a luncheon or a dinner, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or rich neighbors, in case they may invite you in return, and you would be repaid. But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, and the blind. And you will be blessed, because they cannot repay you, for you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.’
