In January of 2017, it was an important time to elevate our local support of immigrant-run eateries in Nashville, TN. Nashville is very diverse and with that perk, comes great food options! Thus "Immigrant Run Eateries" began. It started as a printable pdf and quickly had over 1,500 downloads. IRE has now expanded into a website that is used as a tool to showcase local immigrant chefs, organize restaurants by cultures, and provides interviews and downloadable maps.
