Feed Cheney started in February 2010 and has the vision to increase access to healthy foods for low income Cheney residents. It was started by Natalie Tauzin from the Spokane Regional Health District with assistance from United Church of Christ and Women and Children’s Free Restaurant. One of Feed Cheney’s goals is to provide a healthy, hot meal once a month to those in need. This happens on the last Monday of every month at the Wren Pierson Building. They also provide free groceries at the meal to those in need, including a variety of fresh and healthy foods to get families through the month.
In the fall of 2013, the Eagle Volunteers partnership joined the Feed Cheney to provide an additional grocery distribution to the Cheney community. During the 2nd Monday of every month (except for when it falls on federal holidays) in Wren Pierson Community Center’s Senior Room, a grocery distribution is held from 5-6pm. Anyone in the community (including students, staff, and faculty) can access these distributions. There are no screening processes, just a sign-in sheet that requires first name and one way to contact them in the event of a food recall.
