Full Plate Project

We are all about filling plates and filling hearts at Sisters!

Celebrate the work that we do together during Full Plate Project, our summer matching gift campaign!
Grow your support and donate now!

Your donation goes the extra distance during June and July. As part of our Full Plate Project, your gift will be matched dollar-for-dollar by a pool of generous donors!

It is no longer enough for organizations to ask, “How can we feed a community?”; rather it is essential that we answer together “How do we as a community feed ourselves?” At Sisters, answering that very question has molded the trajectory of our work to create equitable models for food access. Bartering in our Cafe for a healthy meal was the first step that took seed over 36 years ago, and has grown into one of the most radical food justice programs around. Your support allows us to grow and thrive - because everyone deserves a full plate!

Women’s Care Days in the Cafe

Every 1st Friday of the month…

Once a month we open our Cafe space to women-identified people and children only in an ongoing effort to keep our space safe for everyone. Anyone who identifies as a woman including trans women (and children) are given priority on these days by creating a space solely for nurturing women, their voices, and some relaxing pampering. You’re welcome to join us in the space or take a hospitality lunch to-go for male identifying folks or if you’re just on the go. Join us each 1st Friday for a relaxing day of massages, manicures and other treats!

Summer opportunities!

Donations Accepted - Just Give Us A Call!

We’re always accepting donations but encourage you to give us a call ahead of time to check on our current needs since they’re always changing and we can sometimes reach our maximum storage capacity. If we can’t accept your donation at this time we can help coordinate with other local organizations who might have a greater need for your donations. Thank you!
