Promote healing through comunidad, comida, and celebración (Community, food and celebration).
Alimentando al Pueblo (Feeding the village) is a nonprofit based in Burien whose mission is to promote healing through comunidad, comida, and celebración (community, food and celebration). We serve the Latinx Communities of South King County/Highline service area - and house the only Latinx food bank food that distributes 2 cultural food boxes, sources foods directly from Latinx owned farms, distributors and grocers and integrates art and live musical performances into their food bank.
Facilitate healing and the creation of memories
Rooted in the knowledge of genetic memory, healing justice framework - and what is at the root of our work - is the intergenerational healing of Community members who have been disenfranchised and traumatized by colonial violence and the fierce and intentional reclamation of our Ancestral practices and futures, so we can thrive.
Reinvest in our Community
We partner and purchase directly from Latinx and BIPoC local farms, grocery stores, and distributors. We also work with Latinx and BIPoC artists, chefs, vendors, artists and creatives.
Culture of Abundance
We want to turn the scarcity model on its head, there is enough - there is more than enough for everyone. We are abundant in love, care, creativity and solutions.
Provide culturally rooted services
From the way we greet and serve our Community at our food bank, to how we are building the foundation of our organization infrastructure, we want to ensure that our services are rooted in Ancestral practices,values and ways of our Community.
