MEMFeast must go on! Organizers continue to serve meals despite pandemic

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — MEMFeast is still happening this year despite the fears of the pandemic.

It is being led by the Mississippi Blvd. this year.

In years past, the event has been held at city hall and has fed around 1,000 of the homeless and hungry in Memphis.

Organizers are putting a twist on the traditional American Thanksgiving by creating pre-packaged to-go meals and delivering them via food trucks to areas most in need across the city.

Volunteers have prepared and packaged the meals at the BLVD in the coming days, and food trucks will pick up the meals on Thanksgiving morning and head to their assigned sites across town to serve those in need.

Participating churches include:

  • Bellevue Baptist Church
  • Christ Missionary Baptist Church
  • New Direction
  • First Baptist Broad
  • Greater Imani
  • Hope Presbyterian
  • Martin Memorial Temple CME
  • Mississippi Blvd Christian Church
  • Monument of Love
  • Mt. Vernon Baptist Church
  • New Direction Church
