Extreme Weather Response

Cold Weather Response

Due to the COVID pandemic, our outreach efforts will look different than previous years. Our outreach workers will focus on daytime canvassing to do supply drops, wellness checks, and provide information on accessing evening shelter sites. Evening canvassing will begin at 7 p.m. and focus on the downtown area. We will coordinate pick-up spots in outlying areas. For more information, please email info@opentablenashville.org or call 615-415-0141.

Between Nov. 1 and March 31, the city operates an overflow emergency shelter when the temperature drops below 28°F. You can read more about how this plan works here: Nashville’s City-Wide Community Cold Weather Response Plan.

How you can help during winter:

  • Volunteer with us to drive vans/buses this weekend. You can email winter@opentablenashville.org if you’d like to drive or if you or your community has a bus/van available to help with transportation.
