Group in front of bags

Hello!

  • Do you know that people experiencing homelessness often suffer nutritional deficiencies, malnutrition, and painful dental decay?
  • Are you wondering how your individual actions could make a difference in the lives of many suffering from food insecurity?
  • Would you be inspired to help A Meal With Dignity by reaching out to organizations in the Bay Area to help solve hunger?
We are A Meal With Dignity. A San Francisco Nonprofit with a mission to inspire everyone to feed our neighbors currently experiencing homelessness with dignity - one personally delivered, fresh & nutritious bagged lunch at a time.

A Meal with Dignity needs your help sending outreach emails to organizations in the Bay Area in hopes to inspire them to hold their own meal-making event at their business. We will provide easy-to-use templates and a spreadsheet of potential organizations to reach out to. You will need to occasionally research who should be contacted in each organization. You then report back on success.


What is an Outreach Volunteer?

We are looking for self-motivated individuals to research local organizations, brands, and companies that share like-minded values and goals to guarantee hunger stability.


What are the skills I need?

  • Research: Research organizations that have community advocacy as their mission.
  • Internet Research & Data Entry: Enter specifics about organizations and why we might partner (Salesforce knowledge is a plus.)
  • Community Outreach: Send emails to organizations to inspire them to hold their own meal-making event at their business. Connect with those who share a common vision.

Thank you for considering this volunteer opportunity. We need your help to end homeless hunger!

About A MEAL WITH DIGNITY

Location:

45 DIVISADERO ST, SAN FRANCISCO, CA 94117, US

Mission Statement

To inspire everyone to feed the homeless with dignity - one personally-delivered, fresh, organic and sustainable boxed lunch at a time.

Description

At its core, A Meal With Dignity is a grassroots movement that brings groups of people together to hand-make lunches with high quality, local ingredients - and hand-deliver those lunches to people experiencing homelessness in their communities.

For individuals, companies and community-based organization who believe in the human right to food, AMWD is the only feeding program that provides fresh, organic and sustainable individual bagged lunches, made by hand in small batches in distributed locations, and delivered in person to the unsheltered homeless where they live. Unlike other large-scale, conventional, and centralized homeless feeding programs, AMWD is the only feeding program that fully respects the right of unsheltered homeless to a meal with dignity.

Founded in San Francisco in 2017, we delivered 2000 bagged lunches annually by 2019. Our 2020 Goal is to deliver 5000 meals thorough lunch-making events hosted by individuals, for-profit enterprise partners, and community-based organizations, e.g. schools.

We recently began our national expansion through a partnership with Postmates. Given the COVID-19 pandemic, we recently shifted to Small & Simple Virtual Events. We also just launched a joint student-led effort with the Hospitality Program at the University of San Franciso (USF).
