  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.

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 hand-deliver fresh and sustainable meals to our community members who are currently experiencing homelessness?

We are A Meal with Dignity, A grassroots San Francisco nonprofit whose mission is to inspire everyone to feed our neighbors currently experiencing homelessness with dignity. We personally nourish our unsheltered neighbors by hand-delivering, fresh & nutritious bagged lunches within our communities with face-to-face connections wherever we see someone who may be experiencing hunger. We are halfway to our goal of 2,000 meals by the end of the year - 1,068 down and 932 meals to go! We need your help to get there!

We invite you to join us virtually every last Saturday of the month, as a Meal-Making Host Representative. In doing so, you are able to have a unique opportunity to create a relevant and meaningful community impact on all those affected by homelessness, housed and unhoused.

Each month you will gather your friends, family, and supplies to build the nutritionally focused AMWD meal, created by our team health advisor Dr. Adrian Aurrecoechea. The meal-kit was designed with providing a sense of elevated dignity, nutritional deficiencies, and dental decay in mind, to nourish the most beneficial meals possible to the members of our community who need them the most.

After the meal has been assembled, you and your team will get your "boots on the ground" and participate in the face-to-face delivery that AMWD is known for.

We encourage you to connect with your delivery group after administering the strengthening and healing meals to the community to talk about what inspired each of them to help, what the experience was like for them, and what lasting impact it had on them.

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).
