In response to the pandemic, we were honored to serve as fiscal sponsor for this worthy new initiative that sprang into being through the efforts of a tireless group of volunteers and the vision of Maggie Baird, actress, screenwriter, and mother of Grammy-award winning artists Finneas and Billie Eilish.
Support + Feed began as a crisis response initiative to provide plant-based meals prepared by local restaurants to individuals, children, and families disproportionately affected by the pandemic, while showcasing the benefits of a plant-based diet. Since then, Support + Feed has grown into an established organization with a mission to positively impact the environment and combat food insecurity by providing plant-based food and education about its benefits to underserved, distressed, or traditionally marginalized communities.
Operating in Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, and Washington DC, volunteers delivered nearly 60,000 meals in 2020 through partnerships with vetted organizations such as homeless and women’s shelters, family and children’s programs, food banks, senior centers, LGBTQ programs, and community centers.
Support + Feed now has IRS 501(c)(3) tax exempt status, so our assistance is currently focused on supporting a smooth transition to independence. It’s been a privilege and pleasure to help launch Support + Feed as a way to further our mission and expand our service during one of the most consequential challenges facing the world today.
