teen helping at catfish dinner

Each year, people from all over Middle Tennessee gather to raise support for the summer leadership development programs of Nashville Inner City Ministry. Thousands of people enjoy the great food and fellowship while raising money to send at-risk youth from our inner city communities to camp, provide interns to mentor and support them, and fund other summer activities.

What can 1,000 people do in two and a half weeks?
Anything they want!
And you did just that by rallying your friends and family and supporting our Catfish Dinner. So far, this year, we have raised $145,000 to support summer leadership development, summer camps, campaigns, and interns. Our children will be transported, fed, taught, loved, and encouraged in a safe environment because of your generosity.
