Laresia and Austin Avery have big dreams. They want to see food waste and food deserts eliminated, helping vulnerable communities get access to fresh, healthy food and mitigating the impacts of waste in the process. They want to see it happen on a national scale, but first, they’re trying to eliminate waste and hunger in Memphis.

The couple behind Fish-n-loaves, a Memphis nonprofit dedicated to eliminating food waste and feeding people in food deserts, have seen success with an aquaponic farm and food distribution center in Frayser. Now, they’replanning to open another sustainability hub in Orange Mound, the next step on their journey to keep Memphians healthy. 

“Why is Orange Mound the next neighborhood? … I wish we could say we sat down, we had this big vision, God said, ‘Ahhhh!’ But that’s not (what happened),” Austin said.
