Mission Statement

Through our innovative mobile food packaging program, Outreach/Feed6 organizes meal packaging events - in church halls, school gyms, hotel ballrooms, corporate headquarters, and conference centers - drawing hundreds, sometimes thousands of volunteers, each prepared to donate a couple of hours to package nutritious, protein and vitamin enriched meals for the hungry. Volunteers are organized into small group assembly lines, preparing delicious, nutritious meals that are bagged, labeled, weighed, heat-sealed, and boxed employing strictly observed safety and hygienic precautions and COVID guidelines. These are extraordinary spirit-enriching events of giving and caring in which any one of any age or background can participate and extend love to those in need. Packaged meals are distributed through local soup kitchens and community pantries to those most in need.

Description

In 2011 Bill Kanatas and Chris Coyne co-founded the Feed6 (www.Feed6.org) movement in the Chicago area as an expression of their support for local hungry and food insecure children, families, seniors, and veterans. Over the years they have attracted dozens of corporations, congregations, civic organizations, and schools as financial and hosting partners - and tens of thousands of volunteers - to package and distribute 5 million nutritious meals to neighbors in need.

All of this work has been done in partnership with the internationally respected 501(C)(3) charity, Outreach (www.outreachprogram.org) which is accredited by Charity Navigator and has been specifically honored at the White House by two US Presidents. Over the years, Feed6-Outreach has hosted hundreds of powerful celebratory events, each packaging tens of thousands of meals, bringing people of all backgrounds together in heart-filled, giving, caring experiences and preparing nutritious meals for local neighbors in need. Since 2004, Outreach has been responsible for the packaging and distribution of over 580 million meals.
