We launched Feed The Polls in late September with a simple goal: to ensure that food insecurity doesn’t prevent people from turning out to vote. To do that, we teamed up with The Migrant Kitchen, a not-for-profit food relief kitchen based in New York City, started raising money, and identified key polling sites to serve meals while people wait in line.
Thanks to your generosity and some truly excellent partners, we’ve raised more than $400,000, to help feed more than 40,000 people on Election Day.
How to get involved
But we’re not stopping there. We want to reach our goal of serving 50,000 meals.
To help us get there, you can donate here.
Or, if you’d like to volunteer at a polling location on November 3rd, you can sign up here.
Where we'll be
The following cities will offer meal distribution sites:
- Philadelphia, PA - 34 locations
- Los Angeles, CA - 10 locations
- New York, NY - 4 locations
- Phoenix, AZ - 3 locations
- Miami, FL - 2 locations
- Denver, CO - 1 location
As donations continue to build towards Election Day, additional locations may be added within existing cities. Affiliated events are being planned locally in a number of U.S. cities hosted by individuals and businesses interested in supporting this important cause. Those cities include Dallas, TX, San Antonio, TX, Austin, TX, Charlotte, NC, Annapolis, MD, Kent Island, MD, Easton, MD, Stafford, VA and Fredericksburg, VA.
Each local food distribution will be managed by The Migrant Kitchen in partnership with local restaurants, food trucks and catering organizations, and staffed by volunteers from the local community.
