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.”

Molly Snyder grew up on Milwaukee's East Side and today, she lives in the Walker's Point neighborhood with her partner and two sons.
As a full time senior writer, editorial manager and self-described experience junkie, Molly has written thousands of articles about Milwaukee (and a few about New Orleans, Detroit, Indianapolis, Boston and various vacation spots in Wisconsin) that range in subject from where to get the best cup of coffee to an in-depth profile on the survivors of the iconic Norman apartment building that burned down in the '90s.
She also once got a colonic just to report on it, but that's enough on that.
Always told she had a "radio voice," Molly found herself as a regular contributor on FM102, 97WMYX and 1130WISN with her childhood radio favorite, Gene Mueller.
Molly's poetry, essays and articles appeared in many publications including USA Today, The Writer, The Sun Magazine and more. She has a collection of poetry, "Topless," and is slowly writing a memoir.
In 2009, Molly won a Milwaukee Press Club Award. She served as the Narrator / writer-in-residence at the Pfister Hotel from 2013-2014. She is also a story slam-winning storyteller who has performed with The Moth, Ex Fabula and Risk!
When she's not writing, interviewing or mom-ing, Molly teaches tarot card classes, gardens, sits in bars drinking Miller products and dreams of being in a punk band again.
