Meals 4 Heels caters to sex workers and sex-positive clientele and was founded by ingenious Portland, Oregon chef Nikeisah Newton in 2019. The Portland area has over 75 plus strip clubs and is known as the “strip club capital of America.”

“Sex workers deserve to be looked at in a positive light,” Newton told 60 Second Docs.

Newton says that food was always had a major role in her life, and she had exposure to numerous different cuisine and cooking methods around the world due to her military upbringing. Newton worked in the food industry for nearly 15 years, and she knew that she wanted to make a difference in the community. She created Meals 4 Heels and is now known as a local hero.

“Their face lights up when I walk in with their meal. I usually get greeted with a hug, which is nice. It’s the best natural high,” she said. It really touches my heart that I get to do this,” Newton told 60 Second Docs.

Newton and her team have stepped in for the community of sex workers in Portland to bring healthy, organic, and delicious vegan meals. Meals 4 Heels has been on the front lines at trans marches, pride events, Black Lives Matter protests, food initiatives for the homeless, and have even partnered with Don’t Shoot PDX.

“I am a two-time formerly incarcerated, black, very out and proud lesbian, so I see you, I support you, and I want to feed you,” Newton told 60 Second Docs.
