In September of 2020, James Parris saw the world closing down, hardship all around and people in his community suffering due to Covid. He easily could’ve shut the doors of his restaurant, let his employees go without and given up. He did not. Instead, James saw a basic need, food. He rallied the local restaurants and convinced them to pool their resources.

The result was the Crisis Kitchen Coalition, which helped feed those in need. Through the valiant efforts of James and the community, the Coalition provided over 80,000 free meals to the neighborhood, serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner to those in need.

As we all rose from the pandemic, James recognized another group that stood tall during the hardship, our active military and our first responders and instead of going back to the way things were he committed to supporting those who support us and thus Feeding Freedom was born.
