Feed Louisville is a support organization for folks living unhoused. Our work is focused on hunger, harm reduction and housing.
Our full service street outreach team takes hot food, water, supplies and services directly to people living in encampments and on the streets daily around the city of Louisville, Kentucky.
We have our own team of chefs who prepare thousands of meals a week to support our outreach and housing navigation teams.
Our team of care coordinators work one on one with folks during temporary hotel stays to assess their needs and help remove blocks to permanent housing. We partner with multiple agencies in the community to provide resources for the various challenges that can be both the cause of, and traumatic response to, homelessness.
Feed Louisville was founded at the beginning of the pandemic by Chef Rhona Kamar and Donny Greene, a seasoned outreach worker who has been working in solidarity with people experiencing homelessness in our community for years. The work started with a conversation and has grown into a network of chefs, restaurants, food companies, farmers, outreach workers, social workers and countless volunteers who work together daily to stop this humanitarian crisis happening in our city.
Donny Greene, Director of Outreach, has worked in solidarity with the houseless community for over 12 years. Before founding Feed Louisville, Donny spent time daily distributing food, snacks and supplies in the camps, along with his teenage children.
Rhona Bowles Kamar, Executive Director, has worked as a chef and restaurateur in Louisville for over 25 years. Before founding Feed Louisville, she was a chef and co-owner of Ramsi's Cafe on the World and Prana.
