Welcome to FedUp
We're glad you found us.

FedUp is a food truck in Southeast Michigan. We are a ministry of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) and the Southeast Michigan Synod, ELCA

FedUp serves good, healthy, food truck style food with dignity to communities that are food insecure and economically exploited by unjust racial and economic systems in the United States. Founded by an ELCA pastor, FedUp seeks to blur the lines between faith and food justice.

Our Mission, Vision, and Values

"I came that they may have life and have it abundantly."
John 10:10

FedUp is not just about serving meals, but also about providing hope and abundance. We work to not just meet the immediate needs of the community but to also empower our people toward a future of stability and hope. Our approach reflects the essence of "having life abundantly" by not just helping people survive, but also to thrive.

Land Acknowledgement

We acknowledge that we are here on the beautiful ancestral lands of the Ojibwe, Odawa, Potawatomi, and Wyandot peoples.

We recognize the sovereignty of Michigan’s Indigenous nations and historic communities – both those who live here now and those who were forcibly removed from their Homelands.

We want to express gratitude and appreciation to the Indigenous peoples across this continent who have been living and caring for this land from the beginning of humankind, who are still here and will always continue to be present in this place.

We acknowledge the truth that for more than five hundred years, Native nations have demonstrated resilience and resistance in the efforts to separate them from their land and ways of life.

It is important for each of us to not only acknowledge, but seek to understand the history that has brought us to reside on their land and support the process of social justice and reconciliation.

More action needs to be taken to reverse the long-standing practices to erase Indigenous people’s history, language, culture, and existence.

We have a lot more to learn and do.
