An online forum that is here for you 24/7? (and on Facebook)
A volunteer team that is out there advocating for the parent community at events and meetings and committees all over the world all year long?
A social media presence on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Youtube, Instagram spreading information about evidence-based treatment?
A website with authoritative information and printable resources?

You are there.

Want to see some of the people from this community speaking to you about what we do and why we do it? Click:

Look at the updates for videos of parents from Australia, UK, US talking about this community and why it matters to us personally.

Oh, and remember that while we make all this available for free it does have costs, so please help us earn funding from Newman's Own Foundation? Every donation, no matter how modest, puts us in the running for prizes during the holiday season and we NEED them to keep helping us help YOU!

Another video, of a father of a son with an eating disorder who felt listened to and now helps other families in the same way:

There is no other organization like this, and it only happens because all of us support it!!

This is with thanks to ATDT. Hoping to get him into full recovery and remission one day at a time. Getting him to a much higher weight, and with a much higher calorie plan than his clinicians gave him as a target, was instrumental to getting him to the strong recovery that he is in now. Food is the medicine.

Such poignant words from FEASTies around the world!
I'm so happy to support the resources that FEAST and Around the Dinner Table provides to families and carers worldwide who are fighting to help their loved ones with an ED.

Our family is out the other side from our ED nightmare, and it's thanks in large part to the support online and in person from FEAST members.  

I'm happy to give back to an organization that provides such valuable resources and volunteer time to families in need.
