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 guests cannot afford a meal, they “pay” by volunteering at the gym, assisting with neighborhood cleanups, or serving at another accredited non-profit. To date, Juice Almighty has served 48,000 “complimentary” meals to local youth, families, and guests, while teaching and exposing patrons to wholesome nutrition and healthy eating habits.
When Memphis Rox was forced to close due to Covid-19, Juice Almighty began to hand out free lunches to the community. These lunches focused on individuals and families with low to no income due to the impacts of Covid-19 as well as children who had been reliant on school for one to two meals a day prior to COVID-19 shuttering schools. By handing out 200 lunches daily, we are able to provide those in the community with one consistent, free meal a day that they can rely on without worry. We’ve already distributed more than 7,000 lunches throughout the pandemic and plan to continue this program daily in order to meet the community’s needs.
Come help us hand out meals Monday – Friday from 10 AM – 1 PM!
