The Meal That Heals is the name for this inaugural event being held Saturday, May 13, just outside of Nashville by Fresh Hospitality and the Shalom Foundation.

One-hundred percent of the proceeds from the evening directly benefit the Shalom Foundation’s efforts to address desperate medical needs and provide critical surgeries to impoverished children through the Moore Pediatric Surgery Center in Guatemala City, Guatemala.

Together at Biscuit Love’s new Franklin location, notable top chefs of the Southern variety along with Grammy Award-winning bluegrass band The SteelDrivers (yes, they are still rockin’ and rollin’ even without Nashville’s beloved songwriter Chris Stapleton as frontman) are set for an evening of entertainment to fundraise for a worthy cause.

It is all going down in Franklin, Tennessee, just south of Nashville. Biscuit Love’s third outpost here has yet to open, so this will be an exclusive first look at the new space. To get a spot, you can purchase tickets for $1,000 per plate or $10,000 for a table of ten.
