Changing lives one family at a time.

Our Story

CHAT N CHEW (CNC) began in 2017 when a diverse group of women gathered for brunch. The goal was to support each other's ventures and network with one another. The women had the opportunity to share their hearts and quickly came to the conclusion that they had a passion for helping people. Not too long after chatting and chewing, CNC became a 501(c)(3) serving domestic violence survivors and those with food insecurity.

Our long-term goal is to build small living spaces to serve as short-term homes for those who have fled abusive homes.

CNC is a faith and volunteer-based 501(c)(3) organization that assists food-insecure families and single parents affected by domestic violence with a hand-up so they can move forward. This passion is based on our Founder's personal experience with domestic violence, homelessness, single parenting, and food insecurity.
