Feed, Nourish & Transform



 Out of a Jam is a multifaceted non-profit with a vision to nurture and educate youth and women, a plan to save overstocked foods to feed the less fortunate and a program to guide students toward a successful path in life. Our Mission is to develop culinary, vocational and life skills of everyone we encounter through mentoring and compassion.

Who We Are

Out Of A Jam began in 2016 with a 4-pound bag of sugar and a whole bunch of berries. Since then we have grown to include working with at risk youth, catering, after school cooking classes, and much more!  With every new venture, we continue to Feed, Nourish, and Transform the lives we touch in Fort Wayne and beyond!!


Year we established
our mission.


Young lives impacted by our programs.


Outings our JAMM Food Truck makes each summer.

Consider giving today! Every gift of time, money and prayers helps in our mission to Feed, Nourish and Transform lives. We cannot do this without you!
