About Us

Why Memphis Veg Fest

Serving and living in Memphis, it’s hard to miss the pressing need in Memphis for access to fresh, healthy foods.
A 2010 Gallup poll ranked Memphis as the most food-insecure major city  in America. We are consistently ranked among the top three fastest  cities in the country. Even where there is fresh food, a large segment  of our community does not have knowledge of the variety of exciting ways  it can be prepared nor the benefits of a plant-based diet.

Do Something About It

 Our answer to this is Memphis Veg Fest, an annual celebration of the  fun, delicious ways to enjoy fresh fruits and vegetables. Our goal is to  give people greater access to nutrition, vitality, and health.  The  festival is filled with people enjoying vegan and vegetarian foods,  participating in demonstrations, and learning from speakers.
