Buddy System MIA is a young non-profit fighting food insecurity by creating innovative ways to engage its Miami community and empowering neighbors to support neighbors, beginning with access to free, healthy food. Buddy System emphasizes art for social change and community organizing with the ultimate goal of creating lasting change by addressing local issues by the community, for the community. Buddy System MIA's programming includes 10 Community Fridges painted by local artists that provide free, healthy food throughout Miami, a food pantry that supports their distributions to homebound individuals, 400,000 pounds of food waste rescued and repurposed yearly with community partners and local restaurants, and large-scale community events with entertainment, community partners, free food, and classes. Buddy System MIA's programming relies on contributions from organizations and individuals to help carry out its mission of feeding Miami.
