MEMFeast is back and ready to serve even more Thanksgiving meals

MEMFeast is back for 2021 and will be mobile again this year, but they hope to serve even more meals than last year.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The purpose of MemFeast is to be able to give to those in need for Thanksgiving. The overall goal is to give 5,000 hot meals on Thanksgiving Day, and so far, thousands of dollars worth of food has been donated.

“We have a lot of Memphians that suffer in silence and to be able to do something to make sure that everybody regardless of socioeconomic status, ethnicity, that you have a quality meal shows the strength of our city," MemFeast Organizer Brian Harris said. "It shows the passion of people.”

This year, the Mississippi Boulevard Christian Church (The BLVD) will be hosting the event for the third time. Like last year, MemFeast will prepare the meals and will use food trucks to take them to other locations in the city.

MemFeast will now be at more locations for 2021 with more meals planned to be dished out.

“Who would have known that we would have gone from 700 people to 5,000," Harris said. "Because times have changed, situations have changed, just to know that my church, under the leadership of Dr. J Lawrence Turner and other companies, has come together to keep it going has just been mind-blowing and again heartwarming."

Those looking to donate or volunteer can visit the church's website for more information on that.

Meals are available for anyone that needs it. People can drive or walk up to locations.

Harris encourages people to take a plate for an elderly neighbor too.

The event at The BLVD will be Thursday, November 25th from 10:30am-1:00pm at 70 N Bellevue. The other churches that will give food are:

  • Christ Missionary Baptist Church
