The FED program is a food empowerment initiative delivered by Feed The Mass.Our objective is to combat food insecurity at its source and nourish bodies and spirits in our community by serving healthy, satisfying, and delicious meals to our neighbors in need.
Each of our meals sources a portion of its ingredients from excess food supply donated by one of our many community partners. In our first year, our program has served 170 thousand meals to our Portland neighbors and rescued 115 thousand pounds of food from being wasted.
Our programs exist to fight food insecurity and food waste at their source, and our holistic approach to food systems management has resulted in a growing network of local collaborations that enable us to serve our community. As levels of food insecurity in Portland reach unprecedented heights and the funding sources that many have relied on to meet basic needs during the early stages of the pandemic disappear, we attempt to stand in the gap by bringing food that would otherwise go unused directly to people who need it in the form of lovingly prepared, nutritious meals.
