FEED SKID is a grassroots volunteer initiative that happens weekly on Tuesday at 5 PM. Our philosophy is a "direct to the streets and into the hands" approach. We realize a large amount of organizations have exhausting hierarchies that slows and dilute resources. And for that we are not a non-profit -- we're a grassroots community group doing the work consistently. EVERY resource donated and funds raise go directly back to the streets. Because of our consistency every Tuesday, we've established trusting and close relationship with the unhoused community on Skid Row
HOW WE STARTED
On Juneteenth 2020 we had a plan to rally up, and host a solidarity march from City Hall to Skid Row. With Hundreds of people, led people to up drop off PPE, hygiene and snacks in front of the midnight mission. We were hit with a reality check when a woman called us out and said: “I don’t got a damn dime and you get to come and go, I’m stuck here honey”. She reminded us that day that it's easy to show up once in awhile and the unhoused community is result of a racist capitalist system.
SINCE WE STARTED
THIS WAS HOW WE STARTED
