Since the inception of the F.O.O.D. program and HIP HOP – Hunger Intervention Program Helping Other People – in August 2017, the program has fed over 2000 homeless, houseless and working poor in the Oakland Area. Founded and led by queer women of color, the HIPHOP project utilizes a 24-ft. trailer known as the “RIG” as a fully self-contained mobile kitchen to serve fresh, hot meals to communities on a massive scale.
HIPHOP has been self funded for 16 months and we have feed over 2000 homeless, houseless and working poor people in Oakland and Antioch. We are now in the process for 2019 developing a partnership with the LBGTQ Center in Oakland to feed the communities we serve. We have a 24ft mobile kitchen called the “RIG” where we go to encampments or once a month feed at the Love Center Ministries in Oakland CA and Grace Bible Fellowship of Antioch and feed in Antioch. We feed people a hot made from scratch soul food meal with menu choices. People get to eat as much as they want and everyone is served with dignity, respect and love.
