We are a team connected through our shared commitment to service and helping others and sustaining the planet. Inspired by the response to COVID-19 by World Central Kitchen and Support + Feed, we set out to support the momentous efforts already in place to meet the rapidly growing need for food in our community.
We started by assessing the need and learning how best to partner with local chefs, farmers, and volunteers to mobilize restaurant workers and offer freshly prepared, organic, plant-based meals to seniors, children and families, and other community members affected by the current pandemic.
Our goal is to fortify all strands of the web, with a focus on ecologically sound organic nourishment from planet to plate to palate. Numerous organizations—both long-established and recently formed—are collaborating to meet burgeoning food needs in this pandemic moment.
We’re committed to complementing rather than duplicating one another’s efforts, with a focus on getting meals to those who may be unable to access food pantries or safely leave their homes.
We are also enormously grateful to the myriad organizations who’ve created brilliant blueprints for getting started.
Please visit their sites to support their work and learn more about how to form a Covid-19 response organization in your community.
Special thanks Moji Javid at Rodef Sholom and Laurie Dubin of ‘Be the Influence’ and Dine11 Marin for the wondrous support.
