Joel Sullivan, CEO of the Middle Tennessee chapter of the American Red Cross, said changing demographics have led to a demand for food that meets the specific cultural and religious needs.
The Red Cross is looking for vendors that can supply vegetarian, kosher and halal meals.
The Tennessean reports that Muslim leaders have also asked the charity to look into providing separate spaces for men and women at their shelters.
Rabbi Saul Strosberg of Congregation Sherith Israel in Nashville said the fact that people are complaining about the food shows what a good job the Red Cross is doing with the essentials.
