Making Justice Irresistibly Delicious

Mission Statement:

FEEST trains youth of color and working-class youth to build collective power and organize for transformative and systemic change in their schools.

About FEEST:

FEEST trains youth of color and working-class youth to build collective power and organize for transformative and systemic change in their schools. Our power comes from building a strong base, developing youth leaders, and running dynamic, radically joyful campaigns for systemic material change. Our work is both youth-led and multigenerational.

Our roots started in food justice and through that, we have won systemic improvements in school food in Highline and Seattle Public Schools. Since the 2020 campaign to remove police from Seattle Public Schools, we have expanded our campaign goals to include a wide range of systemic solutions that improve student wellness at school.

FEEST’s Vision for Schools:

We envision a today where youth of color and working-class youth exercise their power to change systems that serve them so that they can thrive physically, mentally, and emotionally. In our vision, schools are vibrant learning centers that reflect the students they serve and support the long-term growth and holistic wellness of students and our communities.

FEEST’s Vision for Society:Β 

We envision a society where working class youth and families of color are thriving in vibrant, politically powerful communities. We see this society built on values that include, but are not limited to:

Transformative Racial, Economic, and Environmental Justice:

Eliminating oppression at its roots, prioritizing equity, and ensuring that everyone can live a healthy life on a sustainable planet.

Interdependence and Collective Liberation:

Recognizing that our struggles are linked and that we need to build trust with each other and work together to achieve liberation for all people.

Self-Determination:

Those most impacted by injustice should be the primary decision-makers on how to address it.

Creativity and Radical Joy!

We embrace our natural impulses for happiness and creativity to connect with each other, build community, and energize our movements.

 

Show FEEST some love!

Youth are in the lead at FEEST because we know that change is not effective unless those most impacted by health inequities are the decision makers. Support youth leadership by donating today, OR sign up for our newsletter to get the latest from FEEST!
