We are the food security working group of the General Defense Committee of the Industrial Workers of the World of Madison, WI.
We have consistently been doing a free meal on State St., with gourmet hot food for folks who are homeless and in need of hot, healthy, satiating meals. We usually serve on Saturdays, but sometimes Fridays and Sundays, almost always right at 6pm.
We are working with the awesome group in town, Healthy Food For All Dane County, who’s mission is to make sure that food doesn’t get wasted and folks don’t go hungry in Dane County. They supply us with high quality perishable entrees that would otherwise have been wasted and we prep and serve it to folks downtown on State St.
We have also been lucky enough to work with some folks who are skilled in street medic knowledge and that have been able to assist many houseless folks with various ailments while we serve food.
We have been incurring costs for supplying drinks, silverware, plates and bowls, cups, condiments and side dishes for the free meals. After having five free meals, our average cost is about $0.75 per person we feed per meal. If you donate $7.5 you can help us feed 10 folks! https://tinyurl.com/y7bjknud
