There is currently a Humanitarian Crisis of Homelessness and Hunger in our communities.

  • Did you know that people experiencing homelessness often suffer nutritional deficiencies, malnutrition, and painful dental decay?
  • Are you wondering how you could contribute individually to relieve some of that pain caused by food insecurity within our neighborhoods?
  • Would you be inspired to help A Meal With Dignity make and deliver fresh and sustainable meals to our community members who are currently experiencing homelessness?

We are A Meal With Dignity, A San Francisco nonprofit whose mission is to inspire everyone to feed our neighbors currently experiencing homelessness with dignity - one hand-delivered, fresh & nutritious bagged lunch at a time. We are halfway to our goal of 2,000 meals by the end of the year - 1,056 down and 944 meals to go! We need your help to get there!

We invite you to join us - from your own home - by the simple act of making healthy lunches and delivering them directly to our unsheltered neighbors at our Virtual Meal-Making Event via Zoom. Attending A Meal With Dignity event is a unique opportunity to create a relevant and meaningful community impact on all those affected by homelessness - housed and unhoused.

We continue our vital work during the Delta variant using the small and simple virtual event format, enabling more communities to participate in bringing nourishment to our unhoused neighbors.

If you are interested in joining us, please order supplies ahead of time, which can be accessed here: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/2TIO59EFCQ06Y/ref=cm_wl_huc_view

Please look over our Meal-Making Toolkit for a list of ingredients used in the sandwiches, along with the basic preparation steps and information:

The event starts on October 30th, at 10:30 am PST, and should go until 12:30 pm, including delivery time.

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).
