Founders Alok Appadurai & Jade Beall
Fed By Threads set out to inspire change & get us back to the roots of what America stands for: generosity, community, feeding the hungry, and making real goods for our national economy. Let's stop outsourcing jobs. Let's stop destroying the environment. Let's stop blaming the hungry for being hungry. We sacrifice profits to feed hungry Americans, revitalize U.S. garment manufacturing to create jobs, & use sustainable fabrics to protect our environment.
That is why Fed By Threads is the first and only humanitarian, sustainable, US-made clothing line & store in America that feeds 12 emergency meals to hungry Americans from each item sold.
The Choice is simple; The results are profound.
By taking personal responsibility to create change, together we can make a difference!
While there are many projects aimed at fixing hunger problems around the world, Fed By Threads is focused on fighting HUNGER in our own backyard, our own communities, our own country right here in America!
