John T. Edge, host of TrueSouth on SEC Network, is teaming up with some friends and colleagues to come to the aid of a popular restaurant in Nashville, Tennessee.

To help Silver Sands Cafe, one of the most beloved restaurants in Nashville, during these difficult times in the coronavirus pandemic, TrueSouth, @cityhousenashville and the @leeinitiative are raising funds.

If you are looking the help out and live in Nashville, buy a Picnic Basket (featuring chef/owner Sophia Vaughn's delicious fried chicken) for pickup at CityHouse on Saturday, May 23. If you live out of town, make a donation through the Lee Initiative via the link above or in the John T. Edge Instagram bio @bluefootentertainment.

Located at 937 Locklayer Street in Nashville, Silver Sands Cafe is a family-owned soul food restaurant that serves some of the best home-made southern-style food in the downtown Nashville area. Popular family recipes have been passed down for three generations and the establishment has been in business for more than 50 years.

The series revolves around two Southern bedrock spots that locals cherish. From those bases, the show explores cities and their environs, getting to know good people through good food.
