Feed Your Soul, a fundraiser / auction conceived by the Milwaukee design community in collaboration with Milwaukee artists to feed the hungry in our community, takes place virtually Nov. 6-9. This year marks its 17th anniversary.

Online art auction features many Milwaukee artists and serves as a benefit for Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin and local communities facing hunger. For a full list of the artists and to see their work, click here.

Feed Your Soul's 2020 theme is Community and organizers say it's more critical than ever. The number of people who don't know where their next meal will come from has risen 36 percent due to the pandemic, which mean one in seven Milwaukeeans deal with meal instability every single day.

 “Our biggest commitment is to make sure this event is safe,” says Amy Meyer, co-chair for Feed Your Soul since the beginning. “We’re in a challenging time to plan a live event, and if we can’t in these conditions, we’re still committed to doing something.”
