The idea for FEAST began in 2012, when the NJS Charity Fund was founded for the sole purpose of helping local people in need have a nice holiday meal at Thanksgiving. The thought of doing more then expanded to the Christmas Holiday as well. The focus was to supply nice holiday meals for people in need, predominantly in the Bucks and Montgomery Counties.
The name has now been changed to FEAST; Feeding Everyone at Special Times. Special times has been defined by FEAST as any time people are in need of a good meal. Our primary focus is (but not limited to) Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter. What started as a little bit of a whim, has started to gain some traction and grow in size. Give people a ‘hand-up,’ not a hand-out.
What Do We Do?
Individual meals are prepared, to include turkey/ham, stuffing, vegetable, bread, and dessert. As people and families are identified, they are added to our list. Meals are picked up at the designated time (normally the day before the holiday), at a local church in Warrington, PA. Privacy is respected as most of the people we serve come from local schools and churches.
The best is yet to come! Feast Charitable Organization is registered with the IRS as a non-profit organization.
