Inspired by Tom’s hit film, Bruce Almighty, Juice Almighty opened alongside (and inside!) Memphis Rox in the spring of 2018. The Juice Bar and café provides healthy eating options at reasonable prices, from fruit smoothies and sandwiches to salads and Acai bowls, with no one turned away for an inability to pay. If patrons cannot afford a meal, they “pay” by volunteering at the gym, assisting with neighborhood cleanups, or serving at another accredited non-profit. In year one, Juice Almighty served 17,000 “complimentary” meals to local youth, families, and guests, while teaching and exposing patrons to wholesome nutrition and healthy eating habits.
Juice Almighty and its head chef, Marquisha Edwards — a talented, young Soulsville resident — have been featured in Edible Memphis.
