"Patrons can pay $5 for a shepherd's pie that we will in turn then deliver to local homeless shelters," says Family Wash Owner Jamie Rubin.
The pies will be going from there to the Room in the Inn downtown, and the staff couldn't be happier.
"They're touched," says Room in the Inn's Karen Stevens. "Especially in this season of giving and they definitely want to make a difference."
The Center has been helping homeless Nashvillians for 27 years, and offers a number of services to some 250 men and women every day. They'd like to increase the number of people they can get off the streets and into their building, and Stevens says the pie drive is a great way to do it. Rubin says even after just one day, they're well on their way to reaching their goal of 100 donations in the first week. He hopes the pie drive will keep growing, so his most famous dish can warm the less fortunate in the coldest of months. Rubin says he expects to start delivering pies to homeless shelters as early as next week. You can find out more information about the pie drive and the restaurant on our website.

Tishomingo County voters OK beer, alcohol sales
May 22, 2013 23:38 GMT
IUKA, Miss. (AP) -- Tishomingo County is the latest Mississippi jurisdiction to legalize alcohol sales.
Voters approved the sale of liquor, wine and beer Tuesday, reports the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal (http://bit.ly/13JCcix).
It wasn't clear referendums would pass until affidavit ballots were counted Wednesday.
With more than half Tishomingo County's voters casting ballots, legalizing alcohol passed by 42 votes, while legalizing beer and light wine passed by 73. The county borders Alabama and Tennessee.
Lawmakers legalized liquor at a proposed resort at the county's Bay Springs Lake in 2010, but it wasn't built.
Greene County voters legalized beer sales last year, while Corinth, New Albany and Senatobia have legalized alcohol sales under a 2012 law that allows cities to hold votes.
Mississippi has 13 remaining counties that allow no beer or alcohol sales.
