Feed the homeless & hungry food truck
Organized by: Tasha Miles
My name is Tasha Miles, I have been feeding the homeless for a little over 9 years. My team (my daughter, my good friend and her father and I) provide this help as many as three times a year, in the coldest of winter months, or in the hot summer days. We purchase all of the food, cook it and travel within the tri-state in our cars with heating trays to server it warm.
At times we serve the community in the rain and snow because local business are hesitant to host the homeless in their establishments. Renting indoor space is not an option currently because the cost outweighs our budget. So in the meantime we set up camp at our locations under tents, and in our snow boots if necessary, in order to push forward with our mission.
I do not know what it is like to go without food and shelter. I can sympathize with what I see in our local communities and across our country. So in my effort to help a fellow human being, I started to feed the homeless in areas where I knew there was a need. I started small, just myself and my friend, at a nearby park. I know that I can't feed them all by myself but I do my best each year. Every year I set a new goal to do one more thing to keep improving my effort to help those in need.
Currently, my team feeds about 250-300 people a year. My hope is to feed as many people as I can at different locations. So our goal for next year is to purchase a food truck which will allow us to: 1. Purchase more supplies to stock up and 2. Generate more volunteers to help put an end to hungry bellies.
With your help, through this fundraiser we could cover half the cost of purchasing a food truck that will allow us to reach more people in need, in our local communities. The average properly equipped food truck can cost anywhere from 45K to 60K if not more. I am reaching out and asking for your help to support our mission to feed those in need.
If you can help with a monetary donation please donate. If you can donate food or supplies, please donate. If you can donate your time during one of our events, please donate. Help however you feel moved to help.

I've always wanted to have a place to keep warm and the food hot while serving the homeless and hungry .
