The Need

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, jobs in south Memphis were lost. Those affected were struggling to afford food for themselves and their families. We saw an opportunity to support Memphis Rox in supporting this great community.


Our Contribution

$310,000+ was given in support.


The Impact

Many families in south Memphis rely on school lunches for their meal of the day. With our donation, Memphis Rox was able to provide access to thousands of healthy, affordable meals. In fact, over 24,000 lunches were given out from April 2020 to December 2020.

In addition to needing the meals, the families also needed bigger, better space to gather and share meals.

The funds from our donation also helped complete a kitchen expansion and added much needed seating at Memphis Rox. These improvements aided in subsidizing the costs while increasing the capacity of kitchen and meals.
