Thanks to your partnership in 2015 Teen Feed:
- Opened its doors to 50 - 80 youth each night
- Offered over 20,000 nutritious meals to hungry youth
- connected with over 600 individual youth in need
- worked with over 800 volunteers, who donated over $130,000 in food
In 1987, nurses from the University of Washington Medical Center noticed that many street youth accessing the emergency room were severely malnourished. The community responded, and faith groups, service providers, and neighbors came together to provide food to the University District’s homeless youth population. Teen Feed was born, and now we average 40-50 guests each evening. Teen Feed is the only provider of meals specifically to youth and young adults in the University District open regularly every night of the week.
