Mission

Since 1987, Teen Feed has been dedicated to creating an overwhelmingly rich and supportive local community providing resources to deserving homeless youth and young adults (YYA) ages 13-25. We meet them where they are as they meet their futures off the streets. As the only threshold service agency of its kind in the University District and South King County, we offer basic needs, build strong relationships, and ally with homeless youth. We often create the first opportunity to trust and gain access to essential services that could change the course of their lives.

Notes from the nonprofit

Youth Voices at Teen Feed:
• “Teen Feed is awesome. You know you will have a good meal. Don't always know when you are going to eat next being homeless.”
• “I would say Teen Feed is the sledgehammer with me being the piston, like one of those carnival games. They shot me to the top and helped get me on my feet.”
• “It's a big help. Without Teen Feed I wouldn't know where to eat or case management assistance. Teen Feed helps me take care of myself.”
• “I knew I needed help. Teen Feed gave me a place to ask for that help."
• "Not only are you getting your basic needs met - food clothing, shelter, the staff at Teen Feed legitimately cares. It's a community, and that community has resources to help further you along, which I think is wonderful.”

Teen Feed Meal Program

Since 1987, Teen Feed has been dedicated to creating an overwhelmingly rich and supportive local community providing resources to deserving homeless youth and young adults (YYA) ages 13-25. We meet them where they are as they meet their futures off the streets. As the only threshold service agency of its kind in the University District and South King County, we offer basic needs, build strong relationships, and ally with homeless youth. We often create the first opportunity to trust and gain access to essential services that could change the course of their lives. Our Meal Program – is so much more. An initial entry point into care with a family vibe and warm, nutritious food, a respite from the streets, and supportive connections with mature adults 365 days of the year, we serve food-insecure YYA who are dependent on our consistency at two locations in King County: Seattle’s University District (seven nights/week), and Auburn (Wednesday nights). Our first-contact strategy is low-barrier with no ID required, just a name – any name. We meet immediate needs and build relationships first by positioning 5-9 trained volunteer mentors and key staff stationed at meal tables, listening to daily stories, earning trust and starting the process of change. We host various large volunteer meal teams of 10-15 members who plan, prepare and serve a meal to our youth.
