STREET MINISTRY OUTREACH

Street Feeding is the heart of Each One Reach One, starting in July 1991 in Everett, Washington on the corner of Colby and Hewitt Ave. and extended to Pioneer Square in Downtown Seattle, Fort Lauderdale, Florida and surrounding areas.

The back to school season is often overwhelming for many families. Many children are at a disadvantage in our schools because they don't have the proper supplies. Always having to ask for paper or a protractor can reinforce in a child's mind that they don't have what everyone else has. This is why every August Each One Reach One has their Backpack Giveaway where every child in attendance leaves with a brand new backpack filled with school supplies.
CHRISTMAS TOY GIVEAWAY
Can you imagine your child waking up on Christmas morning with a Christmas tree and no gifts to go under it? Throughout a season where money is tight and the family is the focus, Each One Reach One strives to be the solution to many parent’s troubles in the inner-city and surrounding areas. We provide brand new toys for every one of the children on Christmas. To date Each One Reach One has given away over 92,814 toys at our annual “Each One Reach One Toy Giveaway.”

Each One Reach One is a mobile hands extended organization in partnership with the Emergency Feeding Program where thousands of pounds of food is distributed each month to individuals and families that are in need of food. We’re not bound by serving only one zip code nor do we require individuals to have an ID, our only requirement is if you are hungry and need the groceries. Our goal is to make sure that no adult or child goes to bed hungry. Our biggest time of the year is during the holiday season, such as Thanksgiving and Christmas, when many families are in need of food for the holidays.
