SNAP meetings are on the 4th Tuesday of every month from 6:30-8 pm. Normally we meet at the Tennessee Electric Cooperative Association, 2964 Sidco Dr, Nashville, TN 37204. Park out front in visitor’s lot, or around to the side/back where the TECA has private parking which is okay after 5:30.  Entrance to the building is at the front, at the visitor’s lot.

Note that during the time of COVID-19 we now meet via Zoom. The link to the meeting is sent to all active members. If you don’t receive the link, write to request to be added – and mention how you are involved with SNAP.
