EAT WELL. DO GOOD.
For many of us – grabbing lunch at the local deli is a common occurrence. Yet now with a new initiative called Cart for a Cause, St. Vincent Meals on Wheels of Los Angeles, California, is transforming your everyday lunch into a delicious fundraising opportunity.
Cart for a Cause is the nation’s first philanthropic mobile food truck, featuring top celebrity chefs who donate their time and artistry to feed homebound senior citizens. The concept is simple: Each $10 meal purchased feeds a homebound senior citizen an entire day of hot meals and provides the delivery of the meals to them via a friendly Meals on Wheels volunteer.
To date, the St. Vincent chapter of Meals on Wheels has supplied over 2,000 homebound senior citizens in the Los Angeles area with hot meals through this initiative, and has created a whole movement of passionate fans who follow our Twitter and Facebook notifications of our weekly locations.
So what if you don’t live in California? You can still help! You can vote right now for the Cart for a Cause initiative, which is in the running for a $50,000 grant from Pepsi Cola Company. Visit here to vote and aid our seniors!
