101 Things To Do In Memphis #17: Feed Memphis 10k

by Melissa Thompson

Join us at the Pink Palace in Memphis, TN for a beautiful run to benefit Feed Memphis.

Roughly one in four children in Memphis and Shelby County go to bed hungry. Feed Memphis is an initiative of the Memphis Dream Center to address this significant and heartbreaking need. Each week, volunteers assemble individual red bags filled with food for over 3200 children struggling with food insecurity. These red bags of hope are distributed at 6 Title 1 Shelby County Schools in North Memphis and are often the only food resources these precious children will have until school begins again on Monday.

Running in the Feed Memphis 5k/10k is a great way to increase awareness and meet the needs of children facing the challenges and effects of poverty. All proceeds go directly to the acquisition and distribution of food for children in Memphis.
