FUNDRAISING

Many of our critically-ill neighbors struggle to afford and/or access nutritious food to stay well.

Each and every dollar raised through Ride for the Feast goes directly towards providing healthy meals and nutritional counseling for the people we serve. Our clients never have to pay for these services. 

PLEASE NOTE: As an organization committed to the health and well-being of the community, Moveable Feast encourages all our supporters to abide by the COVID-19 Advisory set forth by the Maryland Department of Public Health. Moveable Feast does not condone, nor is responsible for any person or person(s) hosting events (indoor or outdoor) to benefit the organization that do not abide by State and local guidelines regarding gatherings including proper social distancing measures, mask requirements, and all other safety protocols in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

4) Trade your skills for donations – Make a list of your skills and talents even if they’re not top-notch professionally-rated. What can you offer to people for cash? Do you take photos? Can you do graphic design? Are you a handyman? Can you sew or do alterations? Can you cook? Are you a de-clutterer/organizer? Let’s get real, people are more often willing to give you money if they get something in return. What you consider a mediocre talent may actually provide someone else with exactly what they need at a cost they’re willing to pay.
