FEEST is the Food Empowerment Education and Sustainability Team
FEEST empowers low income youth of color in White Center and Delridge to become leaders for healthy food access, food justice and youth-led advocacy. FEEST’s mission is to set the table for young people to transform the health and equity of their communities by gathering around food and working toward systemic change. We organize 40-45 high school youth once a week to cook an improvised dinner using a table full of fresh vegetables from local farmers and markets. These community dinners serve as a pipeline to recruit and develop emerging youth of color, food justice leaders for our extensive year-long internship program.
Join FEEST on May 9th for our second annual Make Food Make Fam! This is a fun, informal event for the FEEST family to come together and share stories, experience the FEEST magic and celebrate everyone who supports FEEST, from parents to teachers to community partners to sustainers. We will even have a fun cook-off amongst FEEST youth leaders. In the spirit of giving, FEEST youth will do a fundraising pitch to ask those who are able to help reach their GiveBIG fundraising goals. (GiveBIG is on May 10th! Join us the night before to fuel up for all that email reading and giving to your fav orgs.)
