LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) — A local nonprofit is encouraging Louisville restaurant customers to share a meal.

Feed Louisville is hosting a fundraiser in celebration of its third birthday.

The nonprofit is asking for a donation of $3.25 so it can cook and deliver hot meals for the homeless.

While all donations are accepted, Feed Louisville is encouraging people to give more where they can. A $10 donation will provide three hot meals, a $30 donation will feed a houseless person for a week, and $100 will provide a month’s worth of food for one person, the organization said.

More than a dozen restaurants are coming together to support the mission by accepting donations. Below is a full list of participating restaurants, provided by Feed Louisville:

  • Bandido’s – University of Louisville: 423 University Boulevard

Feed Louisville was founded by local Chef Rhona Kamar and outreach worker Donny Greene at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic three years ago with the goal of “meeting the daily basic human needs of Louisville’s houseless community while working to remove the barriers to permanent housing.” 

The nonprofit has a “street outreach team” that takes hot food, water and supplies directly to those living in encampments and on the streets.

Since its inception, Feed Louisville has prepared more than 300,000 meals for those in need. Right now, its team of chefs make and distribute up to 800 meals daily. In the last three years it has also helped more than 60 people move into more permanent housing.
