Volunteers Make the Difference.

In-Reach Volunteers (Must be 18+)
Teen Feed’s version of "drop-in," In-Reach volunteers help facilitate a welcoming space for youth to hang out

however they choose, with the support of In-Reach volunteers to help maintain a safe space, and must
commit to one evening shift per week for a minimum of 6 months.

Description

Teen Feed at a Glance
Teen Feed works with the community to offer support to meet basic needs, build strong relationships, and ally with homeless youth as they meet their future off the streets. With the tremendous support of the community, Teen Feed responds to the most basic needs of homeless youth with integrated programs: Teen Feed Meal Program, Street Talk Outreach Program (STOP), and Service Links for Youth (SLY).

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

History

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.
