Volunteer for F.E.A.S.T.
We are a global organization created and maintained and funded by families around the world. Until 2017, we operated without paid staff hours. That year we began paying two staffers for one day a week. In 2018 a generous anonymous grant funded a full-time staffer for 12 months to coordinate our operations and organize our programs.
But it is volunteers, like you, who make everything work!
Meet some of our key volunteers, and let us welcome your time and talents to our team!

If you are available for an hour on just one day, or several hours daily, we want you. We have projects small and large, short-term or ongoing. Every single thing you do for F.E.A.S.T. makes the world an easier place for a family out there. Let’s make sure the information and services and policies you wished were there for you are no longer missing when the next family comes around!

heard and valued
Being validated as a caregiver by professionals! Knowing that in that room, caregivers were heard and valued.
TED Talk feel
I loved the interactivity and the TED talk feel. It was very intimate and personal too.
The top folks in the field in an intimate, less formal setting that makes it accessible - removes intimidation factor
science and family
It was all about science and all about family at the same time. Brilliant!
Honestly, as a caregiver I have never participated in anything where I felt like, from the start, the caregiver role was not just acknowledge but supported in such a thoughtful and honest way. When Laura acknowledged that some of us were going to need to stay in touch with our kids for ED related coaching it brought tears to my eyes - it was a remarkable validation of the realities caregivers work though every day, and it was incredible to have that statement set the tone of understanding and support that were such strong themes of the day.
exceeded my expectations
I have been to both FOK: Chicago & NYC. They have both exceeded my expectations in content and execution.
