Becau$e. Now more than ever warm socks, nutritious meals, healthcare copays, first-time housing, GED fees and birth certificates for these incredible kids all cost dollars – and all are essential first steps to a life off the streets.
Because. After 30 years Teen Feed stands strong and vital, a hallmark low barrier organization respecting diversity with proven results. Teen Feed continues to get it right, creating the trusting relationships with youth that prevent permanent homelessness irrespective of gender preference, race or situation. We meet them where they are.
Becau$e You Share our Mission. Don’t stand by idle. Individual donors like you will partner with us to accomplish this vital work by giving from $15 to $5,000. Any amount is put to work.
Teen Feed created over 3,000 positive contacts with street youth moving more than 400 of these young adults into services in 2016 – with respect for their stories, goals and dreams, and with your contribution$.
Because you know that compassion is a stronger solution than fear, we challenge you to care. Travel with us in 2017 at every meal, in every outreach backpack, under every bridge, and with every future with alter. Give generously. Give monthly. Give joyfully. We’re on the streets taking the first steps. With you beside us, WE’VE GOT THIS.
Teen Feed is looking for you. We’re 800+ strong community members. You’re a Meal Team Organizer, or an Advocate (over 18) or Ally (under 18) once a week or once a month. You’re a skilled office talent (administrative or technology), a social media guru, a grant prospector or successful people manager. You like to cook. You’ve never cooked. You work at an office of caring folks needing a project that changes our community. We want you and we’ve got a noble purpose for your time. Teen Feed is dependent on our gifted volunteer corps to be successful. We partner with you to raise awareness for community issues and social change, or develop your skills and professional networks. Make friends, have a blast. College interns in study fields such as social justice, advocacy, management, healthcare and nutrition especially encouraged to apply.

There is a warm feeling as we come together to do something good, and recently with #GIVEBIG we did that – $25,000.00 later we stand together with the ability to do more, dream more, and allow our kids the freedom to choose life off the streets with the resources to support them.
On behalf of the staff, meal teams, board members and dozens and dozens of volunteers that made the gears of the two days work, we say “thank you.” Thanks for the generous monetary gifts, the data entry, the phone trees, Seattle Community College Social Justice students for the amazing social media spams and Starbucks, for hot coffee cups. Thanks to the Seattle Foundation who in the face of adversity rose to an enormous challenge and extended giving times. All of you went above and beyond, and we thank you from our hearts. — Teen Feed
