LA couple ready to expand ‘Famine to Feast’

-A A +A
By Tris DeRoma

When the Famine to Feast entity first started out, it was all about directly getting food to the people that needed it the most. Through the organization’s website and app, residents arranged to have unused food they don’t need to be delivered to the people that do.
The organization has since expanded on that idea to include clothing, toiletries and other household items.
Local couple Jaret and Jen McDonald started Famine to Feast about a year ago after they realized they were going to have to throw away much of the unused food they bought while on a vacation.
With no time to drop it off at a food bank before leaving, they thought there had to be a better way.
“We intended Famine to Feast as a person’s last stop,” Jaret McDonald said. “They were either going to throw out the food, or find somebody like us to come and get it.”
Now, a year later, they are ready to expand Famine to Feast to include other locations, and other items.
The McDonalds recently conducted presentations in Santa Fe, Austin, Texas and Los Angeles to get the word out about Famine to Feast and how people can use it to help their neighbors in need. It has not been hard to find volunteers in the cities they’ve visited to help get the word out.
