Village Keepers was founded in the summer of 2015 by Cinnamon Rosa. She saw a need in the community following the end of a highly known summer lunch program.

This led her to begin serving lunches one day a week in local Tacoma parks out of her family van.

Since then, the organization has grown into several programs including community dinners, school’s out lunches, and a five day a week summer lunch program.

Cinnamon has inspired many to join her cause, enabling the organization to grow and expand its resources.
