I went to Urban Bicycle Food Ministry (UBFM)  last Saturday morning to help them make breakfast burritos! UBFM takes these burritos along with other drinks and snacks on a bike ride down Main Street where they hand them out to homeless people. What was most amazing about this group is they not only provide the homeless with a meal, but also make it a point to provide companionship. Most people who are homeless get ignored all day and have no family or friends to rely on, so UBFM tries their best to take the time to listen and talk with these people in need.

While this group does meet at First United Methodist Church, the participants come from all different backgrounds. UBFM meets every Wednesday night and Saturday morning. You can help out by making burritos, going on the bike rides, or both! Be sure to sign up for this great event by going to VolunteerCompass.com!

Hey everyone! Today I volunteered at Memphis Tilth. Memphis Tilth an organization that promotes community development, increases access to local foods, and strengthens farmer livelihoods. Tilth is an English word that means the quality of soil and the cultivation of wisdom and spirit.

I had such a great time volunteering at Memphis Tilth! Everyone was very kind and passionate about what they do. I even met two other Volunteer Odyssey volunteers!Screen Shot 2017-06-14 at 10.44.08 PM
Memphis Tilth has under 10 employees so they really need volunteers like you to help them revolutionize the food system. To sign up or look for other volunteer opportunities go to VolunteerCompass.com. I know I’ll definitely be back!

Meet Alexis:

Hey everyone! My name is Alexis Lynn and I’m going to be vlogging for Volunteer Odyssey to show you what it’s like to volunteer at different non-profits across Memphis. I just moved to the city and thought this was a great way to get involved in the community and learn my way around Memphis. Check out my first vlog to see how to get involved in Memphis and hear all the fun places I’ll be volunteering this summer.

If you’d like to volunteer along with me, visit volunteercompass.com to get started. Maybe I’ll see you there!
