We tried playing tug-of-war with a string of sausages, but...


...we ended up with pulled pork! 
We kid, but it's also a great intro to last month's meal and our upcoming October dinner. We've gotten pretty good at our Sausage and Egg breakfast sandwiches with hash brown tots.  Those sleek, black takeout boxes were filled to the brim with warm breakfast goodness.

Now that we're champions in the breakfast game, we're going to try switching it up for October's meal by trying out a ham version.  Wish us luck, consider donating using the link below and stay tuned for new photos!

We're beginning to strategize how we can safely invite volunteers back into the kitchen to help prepare these to-go meals. As we do, it will only be possible in small groups to continue to allow adequate social distancing in the small kitchen space.  If you are interested in being added to our list of on-site volunteers, please email our team at We will contact you once we have spots available. 

In the meantime, we appreciate you continuing to support this effort by donating items or funds to purchase items. To sign up to donate an item using one of our three donation methods, please click this link: October 2021.

Thank you!

Burrito Thursday is Back!

July's Sandwiches:

Thanks to all who donated to help us deliver toasty chicken sandwiches and tater tots to our Teenfeed diners in July. It's always a slam dunk for prep and happy tummies!

August's Burritos:

This month we're excited to bring back the burrito! Chipotle has nothing on this crew and we like rolling all that nutritious goodness into a portable tortilla sack.  Please head over to our Sign-Up to make a donation using any of our 3 convenient methods: August 2021 Sign-Up.


We're testing the waters on bringing volunteers back into the kitchen with us.  Stay tuned for details on signing up to be back on the prep crew.

We're deeply appreciative of all those who have helped us get through the pandemic with your donations! Hope to see you back with us soon.

We bought a chicken to make a sandwich, but.... just made a mess and no sandwiches!

Bad joke, but a good intro to our July dinner- chicken sandwiches! The diners love this meal and it's a good choice for the summer months when volunteers and food donations are harder to come by.  Please take a look at our Sign-up Genius for this month and sign-up for a food donation: July 2021 Sign-Up Genius.

A big thank you to you all for donating to our new Shepherd's Pie menu last month.  Thanks to Linda's recipe innovation we were able to prepare a vegan pie that received rave reviews.  We can't wait until you're all back in the kitchen with us soon.

Keep your eyes on the PIES - Shepherd's Pies!

Our May meal was our first attempt at a waffle, quiche and sweet potato hash breakfast for dinner and we even impressed ourselves.  The diners really enjoy our breakfast for dinner menus! It's a welcome change from their typical lunch/dinner entrees.  Linda's mini quiches were beautiful and the vegan quiche received rave reviews.  Thank you to all who donated last month!

On Thursday, June 3, 2021, well be testing a new menu- Shepherd's pie! Ground meat and veggies in a rich gravy and covered in mashed potatoes- what's not to love? Please take a look at our Sign-Up Genius to see what you can donate: June 2021 Sign-Up. These meals aren't possible without the support of donations from all of you.


We're looking for a third Meal Team Lead to join our team.  If you are interested in helping out with meal planning and coordination, please email us at  

It's great to see our state's vaccination rate on the rise! We're hopeful that we'll be announcing a re-opening of the kitchen to in-person volunteering in the near future.  Stay tuned for detals.

Your TBA Teenfeed Team,

Waffles Anyone?

The diners were excited to see breakfast back on the menu for our April 2021 Teenfeed meal. Those egg and sausage sandwiches disappeared fast and everyone loves a side of tater tots. Take a look at the pictures on the left to see your donations on action.  

After 2 successful breakfast meals we're ready to add in something sweet with a Waffle and Quiche dinner in May.  Click here to see our May menu: TBA Teenfeed May 2021 and sign up to donate food or drink items.

Reopening to in-person volunteering: we are continuing to monitor public health guidelines and COVID-19 infection rates. As vaccination rates continue to rise we hope to be able to welcome everyone back into the kitchen soon. Stay tuned for more details.

Help wanted: Callie and Linda are looking for another TBA member to help out with leading the meal team.  If you are interested in this opportunity, please contact us at

We want to thank you all for continuing to partner with us in our mission support U District youth facing food and housing crisis.

Move Over McDonaldʻs!

Weʻre happy to report that the breakfast sandwiches went off without a hitch! We were even able to create a vegan version with plant based sausage patties and egg replacement. Take a look at the pictures below to see your donations at work for University District youth.

Our hope is that as we continue to move through vaccination phases we will be able to start opening to in-person volunteering soon.  In the mean time, we appreciate you continuing to support this effort by donating items or funds to purchase items.  Weʻre going to work on perfecting the art of the breakfast sandwich by making it again this month.  To sign up for an item, please click this link: April 2021.

Thank you!

BREAKFAST: Itʻs whatʻs for Dinner

Can you believe that weʻre in 2021 and 2 months in on top of that? Our TBA Teenfeed Meal Team has been fortunate to have the continued support of our congregation and community members.  This has allowed us to be steadfast in our commitment to providing hot meals to University District youth that are without homes and in the elements.  

We love sharing photos and if you look below youʻll get a look at the meals that weʻve prepared in December 2020 and January 2021. Both the chicken sandwiches and sloppy joes disappeared fast and tater tots are always a favorite.

Last month we received feedback that the diners have less access to breakfast and miss those foods, so weʻre bringing breakfast to the dinner table on March 04, 2021.  Please click the link here to view our sign up and find out how you can help: March 2021.

Thank you again for continuing to support this effort.  We hope youʻre all staying healthy, happy and warm.
