FEED Shop & Cafe
On her travels around the world with the World Food Programme, Lauren Bush Lauren witnessed the effects of hunger firsthand. In places like Cambodia, Chad and Guatemala, she saw a program making a dent in child malnutrition: school meals. When a child is given a free, nutritious school lunch, it can break the cycle of poverty they were born into and empower and enable them to change their lives.
Lauren founded FEED in 2007 with the simple idea of creating products that would engage people in the fight against hunger in a tangible way. Every one of FEED's products has a number stamped on it that signifies the amount of meals or micronutrient packets provided with its purchase. Ten years later, FEED has built a movement connecting its customers to the cause, one bag at a time.
The FEED Shop & Cafe is FEED’s very first retail location. It combines shopping and cafe elements, offering the DUMBO community a truly unique in-store experience to participate in FEED's mission first hand. Every single purchase, from coffee or pastries to bags, provides meals.
