Feed Durham is a scrappy mutual aid collective that came together in response to mounting hunger in the Durham area, due to COVID. Since 2020, we’ve fed 155,000+ neighbors in need through our sprawling no-contact cookouts, where we lovingly prepare meals for 500 people per day and offer grocery giveaways. This past fall, we launched a Neighborhood Service Corps Initiative to grow food for plant stands and community fridges; install raised garden beds for neighbors in need; redirect our household excesses to people who need our under-used belongings; and share skillsets like basic home repair, outdoor cooking, gardening, land acknowledgement, community organizing, planetary stewardship, etc. This past April, we launched our first Repair Clinic, teaching folks to repair household goods in order to minimize personal expenses and as a landfill diversion practice.
