Who We Are

The Kelly Gibson Foundation, formerly known as Feed the Relief, Inc. was founded by Kelly and Elizabeth Gibson in September of 2005 with the idea of providing necessary support for the front line first responders to Hurricane Katrina. In the days and weeks following the disaster of Katrina, Feed the Relief provided support to the Coast Guard, EMS personnel, police and fire departments, community centers, hospitals, and residents as they returned to their homes.  In addition to responding to Katrina, Feed the Relief has also supported initiatives benefiting military personnel as they return home from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.  We also have broadened our focus to include children's programs with an emphasis on enrichment through athletics. Through our efforts we have seen many lives change for the better.


The Kelly Gibson Foundation is a community-driven charity dedicated to improving the lives of those who live in New Orleans and the surrounding areas with an emphasis on supporting children’s athletic programming, first responders and military initiatives.
