MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Former Grizzlies star Zach Randolph is once again donating meals to help feed the Memphis community this Thanksgiving.
This is the 10th year Randolph has provided meals for Memphis families at Thanksgiving, but the first time he’s partnered with Streets Ministries. Approximately 500 families in Midtown and downtown Memphis will benefit from the generous donation.
“I’m proud to deliver Thanksgiving meals again this year. Particularly during this difficult time, it’s important that families are able to come together to share the holiday season with a meal,” said Randolph. “I’m grateful for the partnership with Streets Ministries that allowed us to deliver these meals in the local community as well as Carnival Memphis and Neighborhood Christian Center for providing volunteers to assist with the effort.”
Volunteers gathered Monday to prep more than 500 meals, which include a turkey, green beans, sweet corn, cornbread and cranberry sauce. On Tuesday, the meals will be delivered to the selected families.
International Paper provided boxes for the effort as well as literacy packs for the kids. All food was purchased through Kroger.
