The Numbers Are In...

2010 was a remarkable year for Moveable Feast. We formed new partnerships and broke new records for our meal deliveries, transportation programs, and culinary job training program. All of it could not have been achieved without the help of staff, volunteers, board, and supporters.

Out in the community, we held very successful Ride for the Feast and Dining Out For Life campaigns. The year also saw the birth of the Partnership for Life with Chase Brexton Health Services and AIRS, leading to the creation of the B'more Aware of HIV: The Living Red Ribbon campaign. On October 9th, we broke a new Baltimore record for the largest living ribbon ever created in the city. And in 2010, we also began providing services to people living with blood cancers, in partnership with the There Goes My Hero foundation.

We surpassed our expectations for meal deliveries. For our meal home delivery program, which includes Daily Home Delivered Meals and Meals for a Week, we delivered 534,527 meals to 948 clients.

For our community partnership programs, where we work with shelters, drop-in centers, and other organizations, we delivered 204,596 meals to 1,065 clients.

All in all, that brings us to a grand total of 739,123 meals delivered to 2,013 unduplicated clients living with HIV/AIDS, breast cancer, and blood cancer. To do so, our vans travelled the world more than 3 times over, covering a distance of 75,829 miles.

Moveable Feast also broke new records for our various transportation programs, which help our Ryan White clients and the Baltimore City homeless get to important medical appointments or social services buildings.

We transported 196 Ryan White clients over 32,000 miles to medical appointments. And we drove 28,194 miles in 2010 in the People On the Move program.

And finally, our Culinary and Life Skills Training Program was a huge success in 2010. This past year, 32 students participated in the program, 27 graduated (84%), and 21 secured jobs (77%). In addition, 12 students (44%) received the ServSafe Certification. 
In 2010, our mission to feed people, fight disease, and foster hope was achieved for more than 2,000 individuals. We look forward to 2011 to not only replicate these incredible successes, but also expand them even futher.
