About Feed by Faith Organization
Feed by Faith is a not-for-profit charitable organization. Our new feeding facility is located at 3401 5th Street in Meridian, MS. Our officers, staff and workers are a 100% volunteer workforce – no one receives monetary compensation for their service. The exception to this is that from time-to-time we accept help from young ladies who are sent to us by a State worker program (who compensates them) for three-month tours of duty. During their tour of duty, we agree to train these ladies in work skills and ethics and they agree to assist us in our mission. Feed by Faith’s Primary Mission is to operate what is commonly known as a ‘soup kitchen’. We feed hot and nourishing meals to the homeless, poor and low-income individuals and families of Meridian, MS. We presently feed noontime meals on three days of each week with hopes of expanding to at least five days per week in the future. We are centrally located to serve the people in the most poverty stricken area of Meridian. Our only requirement for receiving a hot meal on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays is that an individual must appear at our kitchen between 11:30 am and 12:30 pm and sign a name on our register. We require signing a name so that we can have an accurate number count of the individuals we serve. In addition, we presently make exceptions for individuals to pick up and deliver an additional meal to known ill or incapacitated persons. We also furnish up to fifteen hot meals per day for distribution to a homeless shelter run by another local charitable organization.The makeup of Feed by Faith’s clientele is of all ethnic and racial groups with a great portion being children and senior adults. All of our meals are served in ‘carry-out’ containers, however we now have an air-conditioned ‘dine-in’ space in our new facility for those wishing to eat on-site. Feed by Faith’s Secondary Mission is to build and hold basic computer literacy training in our facility for the community. This would enable the unemployed of our community to be able to enter their resumes for jobs on-line. Feed by Faith’s Third Mission is to build a temporary safe haven for battered women with small children. This would be used as a secure temporary housing location until other local agencies that specifically deal with this type of situation could place these women and children.
