Feed Durham is a scrappy mutual aid collective that came together in response to mounting hunger in the Durham area, due to COVID. Since 2020, we’ve fed 155,000+ neighbors in need through our sprawling no-contact cookouts, where we lovingly prepare meals for 500 people per day, and offer grocery give-aways. Through dozens of community partnerships, we feed elders, people living in cars and on the streets, widows, unsupported LGBTQ+ folks, undocumented families, the homebound and chronically ill, elementary students and their families.

In Fall 2022, we launched a Neighborhood Service Corps Initiative to grow food for plant stands and community fridges; install raised garden beds for neighbors in need; redirect our household excesses to people who need our under-used belongings; and share skillsets like basic home repair, outdoor cooking, gardening, land acknowledgement, community organizing, planetary stewardship, etc. This past April, we launched our first Repair Clinic, teaching folks to repair household goods in order to minimize personal expenses and as a landfill diversion practice.

In Summer 2023, “Lovingly Prepared by: A Multimedia Experience by Feed Durham” opened at the Durham Arts Council. Covering both the first and second floor gallery spaces, “Lovingly Prepared by” is a celebration of Feed Durham’s inspirational organizing during the pandemic, when we fed 155,000 people in need. Curated by Feed Durham founder Katina Parker, the show featured artwork, photos, words and videos from a range of makers and community organizers, including: Filmmaker/Photographer Katina Parker, Sculptor/Muralist/Illustrator Dare Coulter, Emmy-nominated journalist/TED Talk Podcast host Saleem Reshemwala, Samantha Everette aka “The Shooting Beauty,” Courtney Symone (“Silent Sam”), D.L. Anderson, Tommy Coyote, Anna Carson DeWitt, Elizabeth Miller-Derstine, Jasmine Leeward, and Casey Toth (formerly of the News + Observer). The exhibit was funded by the Bull City Strong Say Something Strong Fund.

Feed Durham is an all-weather volunteer crew that sets up an outdoor kitchen and prepares food in the yard of a private residence with the use of 6 trailer smokers, 2 griddles, 9 burners, 3 washing stations, several socially-distanced tents for produce chopping, and a fridge trailer. Most of our volunteers are community organizers, teachers, artists, farmers, parents, and every day folks. We are a multi-faith, multi-racial, intergenerational collective. We feed people without judgment and serve the community alongside people who come from all walks of life, without judgment. All are welcome so long as folks treat one another with respect and kindness. We believe that we are only as safe as our least hungry neighbor. We serve more than just food. We serve hope.
