About the event

What are Living Rooms? They are Resource, Art & Info Hubs coordinated by the Village in Oakland in public spaces throughout Oakland, Berkeley and SF. Since Jan 2016, the Village's Feed The People program has provided hot meals, clean drinking water and groceries to unhoused communities. Mid 2016, we expanded to include provisions distribution. In 2020 we expanded again to include harm reduction supplies and PPE. In summer 2021 Feed The People shifted our food distro services from curbside communities, to neutral public places like parks and plazas. We call these spaces Living Rooms, have expanded our offerings and, extended the space to serve housed residents in need. 

The following are some of the activities offered at Living Rooms:

• Hot meals and sitting areas for people to hang out

• Board games, dominoes, cards & chess to play

• Soul Food Shack: (the village’s mobile apothecary program) offering herbal medicine distribution & herbal medicine education

• community mural making project led by PTAH

• Street Smarts School (the Village know your rights program) offering kyr, lawsuit updates, eviction defense info

• Deeply Rooted Collaborative (General Plan 2045) education about the Oakland general plan & conducting surveys to inform the general plan

• legal support for unhoused folks and other folks in need from various Bay Area legal advocacy organizations. for more info text 510-355-7010
