Meal Recipients

Community Food Assistance

All of our restaurant partners prepare most or all meals specifically for organizations that provide food assistance to the communities they serve, which include low-income, immigrants and refugees, seniors, youth, and houseless populations.

Wasat’s Neighborly Needs program was conceived in 2019 and is committed to distribute free and culturally nourishing meals multiple times a week to communities across South Seattle neighborhoods that are facing food inaccessibility.  Their program promotes economic stability for caterers and independently-owned restaurants, removes barriers to nourishing food, and cultivates community around fresh and hot meals.  The meals are served with dignity and are a touch-point to invite youth, families, and individuals to community for a sense of belonging and holistic wellness. 

YouthCare works to end youth homelessness and to ensure that young people are valued for who they are and empowered to achieve their potential. YouthCare envisions a community where no young person experiences homelessness, all young people have the opportunity to thrive, and the systems that oppress them are dismantled.

FamilyWorks envisions vibrant, equitable neighborhoods strengthened by resources designed by and for families furthest from justice. FamilyWorks partners with families to alleviate food insecurity and ensure they have resources and support to overcome systemic barriers to equity, build stable communities, and thrive.
