The Plus Side of Nashville focuses on everything from the works of non-profit organizations to upcoming events in the world of arts.   The public affairs show is hosted by NewsChannel 5's Tuwanda Coleman.

This Month on The Plus Side of Nashville:

Show 1
Did you know that every day, lives are transformed at the Nashville Rescue Mission? They help thousands of homeless people each year by providing shelter, hot meals, and hope. 

On this episode of THE PLUS SIDE OF NASHVILLE, Tuwanda Coleman will be joined by Glenn Cranfield, Nashville Rescue Mission President and CEO, who will talk about Easter and why it is the most important holiday they celebrate at the Mission. They not only offer an opportunity to share the meaning of Good Friday and Easter, but also a time to offer new beginnings for those who may have given up on life.   

Show 2
If you were given the choice between having sight or hearing, which would you choose?  That was a question once asked by the late Helen Keller and she chose hearing, because she said the loss of sight cuts you off from thing, however the loss of hearing cuts you off from people. The organization Bridges works to bridge the gap between the deaf, hard of hearing and the hearing communities. This month on THE PLUS SIDE OF NASHVILLE, Tuwanda Coleman is joined by Kate Haygood the Director of Development for Bridges, who tells us all about the great work Bridges is doing.  Then, studies show that increased access to fresh foods and produce can reduce rates of obesity, diabetes and other diet-related diseases.  Sadly, if you live in a community known as a "food desert", where grocery stores and farmer's markets are few and far between, you are at a greater risk of developing a diet-related health problem.  The Nashville Mobile Market is working to bringing fresh, healthy food to those communities that rely on convenience stores and fast food restaurants for their meals. Tune in to learn about how you can take advantage of this great program.
