Hear what our neighbors are saying about our model's impact and transformative qualities

Be In Attendance At Our Upcoming Annual Hungernomics™ Gala


We recently revealed our moonshot idea which is to flip every food insecure community nationwide in the next 25 years. But how? By establishing beautiful, properly managed, virtual, zero-waste, sustainability hubs in the heart of overlooked and underserved neighborhoods then leveraging those hubs to inspire then empower residents to become a part of the change and/or provision they want to see. We are fully aware that many people believe only a group of focused and disciplined individuals would even be crazy enough to tackle such a massive undertaking. We believe they are absolutely correct!

In the United States, there is more food in landfills than plastics or paper. While food waste happens throughout the supply chain (from the farm to the table), a whopping 83 percent occurs at restaurants and homes.

Get an inside scoop on the road we've traveled to begin wiping food deserts off the map


When we started this journey our primary service area was literally our street in our neighborhood. Fast forward a few years, our primary service area became the Frayser & historical Orange Mound communities in Memphis, Tennessee.  

Now, although our primary service area is still Shelby County, Tennessee, our reach is continuously growing and has also begun to impact the Mississippi – Delta, Missouri, and beyond! And our growth is fueled by generous individuals like you!

Launch A Campaign To Help Us Raise Money For Combatting Food Waste and Food Insecurity

This incredible community is composed of generous, passionate, and determined people—like you—from all around the world. They’re world changers and history makers. And you’re going to fit right in. Our campaigners have done some pretty amazing things to raise money for combating food waste and food insecurity. And they’re thinking of new things to do every day. What will you do? It only takes a minute to set up a campaign: Decide what to do. Provide a short description. Pick a photo. Set a goal. And just like that, you’ll be ready to start raising money to help eradicate food waste, food insecurity, and food deserts while helping people and the environment along the way.

Help Us Remove Then Prevent Other Forms Of Waste In These Food Deserts


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.
