Memphis Plant-Based Food Festival Set for June 22-23

Memphis, TN -  The City of Memphis will host its first Annual Plant-Based Food youth to encourage healthy living at a young age. There will also be an emphasis on green living including a recycling center available at the festival.

The Plant-Based Food Festival will be promoting its “eating healthy is living healthy” theme at T.O. Fuller State Park located at 1500 Mitchell Road on Friday June 22nd and Saturday June 23rd from 9 am—9 pm each day. Tickets are $5.00 with youth under 12 free.

Attendees are asked to bring non-perishable to historic T.O. Fuller State Park on June 22 & 23. The park is located in Shelby County within the southern limits of the city of Memphis and with its abundance of local flora and fauna from the Mississippi flood plains to its high and overshadowing bluff ridges makes this area an ideal place for the first Plant-Based Food Festival.

Attendees can look forward to informative speakers and topics, interesting food demonstrations, delicious food vendors, unique craft vendors, and health focused “edu-tainment” including music and poetry. There will also be activities for the vegetarian/vegan food items to the Plant-Based Food Festival to donate to one of Memphis' Feed the Homeless organizations that care about what they feed those that are less  fortunate.
