Meals With a Mission

Scott Tanksley

Scott founded Meals With A Mission in 2012 to empower people to meet the needs of their community via a favorite pastime - a meal with friends. Scott has a background in corporate real estate, then transitioned to coaching church planters. But, he’s always been interested in giving for impact. He graduated from Mississippi State University with degrees in Political Science and Economics, and received a Master’s in City Planning from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He lives in Atlanta, GA with his wife, two boys, and the requisite yellow lab.

Meals With A Mission is leading a national giving conversation to involve more people in and drive more dollars to community causes. Everyone cares about something, but they rarely get to share why, and they stay disengaged. By shifting the giving conversation from the “ask” to the “tell,” we use a meal to get those stories told and causes supported.
