Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Dozens of volunteers started serving the homeless a traditional Easter meal at the Nashville Rescue Mission on Good Friday. Those volunteers arrived at 7:00 a.m. to start prepping for the noon meal.

The Easter holiday weekend brings out many of the same volunteers and their families year after year.

"The volunteers love it, the guests love it. It's what should be happening out on the streets," said Chris Wilson with the Nashville Rescue Mission. "We should be talking to each other, not ignoring each other. Not turning an eye on each other. We should be interacting."

Nashville Mayor Karl Dean was among the volunteers on Friday.

The traditional meal of ham, green beans, potatoes and rolls will be served for lunch through Sunday. mission officials said they expected to serve more than 4,000 meals Easter weekend. 

For months, the Rescue Mission has been taking donations of food to provide enough for the Easter weekend.
