FEEST Seattle

FEEST is the Food Empowerment Education and Sustainability Team.

Youth-Led Dinners

The dinner table is a powerful place of convergence for people of different backgrounds to come together in a common space, build trust, share food and discover new possibilities.

FEEST Internship & Campaigns

The Internship supports a cohort of emerging youth leaders to develop their social justice analysis, leadership skills and confidence to run weekly dinners and advocate for health equity in their schools and neighborhoods

FEEST organizes alongside youth in White Center and Delridge to combat the root causes of food injustice. As a youth-led food justice organization we build power by creating thriving and creative spaces for both personal and collective transformations.

FEEST delivers unique out-­of-­school programs to youth in the disinvested neighborhoods of Delridge and White Center. In addition to the practical skills youth gain through cooking, food is our vehicle for community building, cultural sharing, risk taking, and leadership development. We empower high school youth to educate their peers and families about healthy eating, food justice and racial equity. These youth leaders develop the skills to be critical thinkers and advocates in all areas of their lives. We are uniquely equipped to support youth from diverse backgrounds in strengthening their cultural identity, connecting with their community and creating long lasting change.

Food Empowerment Education & Sustainability Team (FEEST) works at the nexus of nutrition education, health equity, food access, racial justice, and youth empowerment to increase health in low income communities of color and develop leadership for lasting change.
