Aren't you tired of seeing people in your very own community go hungry?

Do you find it heartbreaking to see that single mother and her child panhandling on the street corner each and every morning, hoping to raise enough money to get one single meal?

I know I'm tired of it and I've decided that enough is enough. It's time to step up and take action instead of sitting around and hoping our government will come up with a solution. Hence, why I would like to introduce "Food From the Heart - A Community Fridge Project."

What is Food From the Heart exactly?

Food From the Heart is a local outreach program based in Everett, WA. Food From the Heart was created with the goal of providing healthy, nutritious food AT NO COST to anyone and everyone in the area who is struggling to keep food on the table and their families fed. 

Food From the Heart consists of a series of refrigerators strategically placed in high foot traffic areas throughout the Everett, WA community. Each refrigerator is cleaned and stocked DAILY with healthy, nutritious food of all kinds and is available FREE OF CHARGE to anyone in need. 

Why the refrigerators on sidewalks instead of a traditional food pantry?

Some people, myself included, have a bit too  much pride and, admittedly, it's extremely difficult for some of us to admit we need help. It's for that reason, our refrigerators are made available 24x7x365 to anyone in need. This way, if a person finds themselves a bit too embarrassed to accept help, they can always stop by in the middle of the night or anytime they wish, completely unseen, and grab anything they may need to help feed themselves and/or their families.

How are you able to provide enough food to help every family in need?

WITH HELP FROM WONDERFUL INDIVIDUALS SUCH AS YOURSELF! Yes, the need out there is FAR greater than most anyone can imagine. With unemployment at an all-time high, the current pandemic, and food shortages throughout the country, not to mention schools being closed, thereby taking away 2 free meals millions of students depend on in normal circumstances, the need for causes like this is at an all-time high! Some families may only need a little, others.....well....have you ever had to buy groceries to keep a family of 5 or 6 fed on a monthly basis? It's not easy, I can tell you that. However, it's because of donations from wonderful individuals such as yourself, that we are able to keep all of our refrigerators available, cleaned, maintained, and, most importantly, stocked at all times. The last thing I would want is for a hungry individual to open one of our refrigerators with the hopes of a nutritious meal, only to find an empty refrigerator....But TOGETHER, we are able to make this work so THANK YOU for anything and everything you are able to contribute. Be it $1.00 or $100.00.....YOUR DONATION MATTERS AND IS APPRECIATED FAR MORE THAN YOU KNOW!

How are you able to ensure the refrigerators do not get damaged/looted and safe for the neighborhood, kids, etc?

Great question! Each refrigerator is strategically placed and secured with 24x7 camera surveillance. Also, each refrigerator is secured with a door sensor that will alert staff anytime someone opens the door of the refrigerator. Why do we do this? Several reasons. First of all, God forbid, if anyone were to vandalize the refrigerator, loot it, etc, we would have it all on film and would be able to prosecute the criminals who are responsible. Secondly, the last thing we want is for a young child to be playing in/around the refrigerator, crawl in, and not be able to get out. Therefore, we have staff who are on hand and available 24x7x365 to monitor anytime someone opens the door to the refrigerators, we are there to make sure all goes smoothly and safely for all involved. 

How will my donation(s) be used for your cause?

Numerous ways.....Of course, the most important way, will be to purchase healthy and nutritious food options to keep stocked in the refrigerators on a daily basis. Secondly, your donation will help us in locating additional, cheap refrigerators that we can prepare and place throughout the community, thereby growing our network of refrigerators that will be available to those in need. Your donations will also go toward providing fuel to the volunteers who will be needed on a daily basis to clean, sanitize, and stock each and every refrigerator. Lastly, your donation will help us afford the cameras/door sensors, etc needed to ensure the safety and security of each refrigerator and community member involved in the cause! As mentioned before, I encourage you to give what you can and please, never think your donation is not enough because, literally, EVERY SINGLE DOLLAR counts and is so very needed to make this happen! If you can donate $1, $10, or $100.....THANK YOU! You can do so knowing your donation is going to help feed someone, a child, or a family today and, for that, we are extremely grateful as is each and every person who does not have to go hungry tonight thanks to your generous and kind donation. Thank you!
