Feeding the Dream
Serving Community with Loving Kindness
We offer nutritious food and basic needs
Feeding the Dream is a volunteer driven community-based nonprofit organization that believes in a world where everyone has access to healthy food needs and basic where they live. We work to provide our community members with the resources they need to live healthy lives. We offer regular food distributions, free farmers market events, and basic needs giveaways. We do not require ID or income verification, and we do not turn anyone away who is in need. We create a place of compassion, understanding, and empathy for people who are food insecure and have experienced the trauma of not having enough food. We are committed to a shame free model for our neighbors and community. We share hope and sunshine when the clouds come. We believe that everyone should be treated with dignity and respect.
“The food distribution has been great for me and my wife, since we feel we’re making a genuine contribution to the health of the neighborhood by doing something as simple as cutting up boxes, sweeping the floor and putting away tables. It’s a chance to get together with other volunteers who make time to help out, and to see a lot of neighbors who stop by to pick up the food that they need. This is really Frogtown at its most positive.”
