Every Friday The Foundry Home Goods contributes 5% of our total sales to a different community-nominated small-and-mighty cause. This Friday's Foundry Giving Friday recipient? Sisters Camelot Mobile Food Bank.
Sisters Camelot Mobile Food Bank is a collectively-run Minneapolis 501(c)(3) nonprofit founded in 1997 that is focused on food justice, waste reduction, sustainable living, community building, and youth education.
Sisters' Camelot serves the community through two main programs: they distribute approximately 6,000-8,000 POUNDS per week of FREE organic groceries. They deliver by bicycle and car and also supply community kitchens that are cooking for unhoused encampments, Indigenous elders, etc. as well as local food shelves.
Secondly, they serve free healthy prepared food from a vintage bus that has been converted to a licensed commercial kitchen. The kitchen bus allows them to feed people AND to nourish the relationships that come through preparing and eating food together.
Hungry mouths, open arms, full hearts, fresh wheels. What's not to love?
If you don't need anything from us, please consider donating directly to Sisters Camelot Mobile Food Bank here.
If you DO find yourself in need of something from us, know that your purchase goes to support good change happening on the community level.
