THERE ARE OTHER WAYS TO GET INVOLVED
We realize that everyone may not be able to make a financial contribution to our initiative! However, everyone can get involved and literally “lend a hand (or finger)” to the cause! Hungernomics™ also aims to prevent other forms of waste that are prevalent in food deserts such as curbside trash: tires, furniture, and other forms of unwanted litter. In order to accomplish this, we always encourage citizens, residents, neighbors and/or volunteers to join our 3-1-1 Army. You can join free of charge and report blight (especially near our sustainability hubs) by downloading the Memphis 311 app from the Apple store or Google Play store. This will give you access to a free SeeClickFix account and allow you to report issues anonymously, if you choose to do so. By reporting anonymously, the system will maintain your anonymity and hide your display name and email address from any public reporting process.
