"If you can't feed a hundred people, then feed just one." ~Mother Teresa
Feed Fred is dedicated to delivering hot, homemade, nourishing meals to those in need within the Rappahannock Region.
The people we serve are children and families living in motels, people who are suffering with an extended illness such as HIV/AIDS, veterans, elderly on fixed incomes, working poor and the homeless. These people are your neighbors and you may not even know they have a need.
We have been serving a sit down, homemade, family style breakfast at the VFW, every Sunday morning, since August 2012.
My husband and I started Feed Fred after volunteering to feed the homeless in our community. We soon realized that the need was greater than what was being offered. There are people all around us who are not able to get the proper nutrition their bodies need. It could be because they are too sick, or maybe it's because they do not have transportation to get to one of the free community dinners offered.
It’s hard to think about anything else when you are hungry… Feed Fred fills that “empty spot” with good food, respect, and companionship. We then help to direct these people to other organizations more equipped to help on a much larger scale.
Feed Fred is volunteer-based, 501(c)(3) tax deductible business. We have been working directly with those who are suffering within the Rappahannock region since May 2012. We are inspired by the opportunity to work together and spread our common cause of compassion. There are so many people around us who could use a little extra help. Sometimes a warm meal and a little hope can go a long way.
