About Cart For A Cause

You eat lunch everyday.  Now this simple act can help the world.  Beginning March 23, 2010, the top chefs in Los Angeles have banded together to help feed those in need.  Cart for a cause is the nation’s first philanthropic meal truck that helps feed homebound seniors and those who are unable to prepare their own meals.  Here’s how it works:  1.  Go to twitter or facebook to find its whereabouts.  2.  Come and buy a lunch for $10, prepared by world-class chefs, which includes a healthy beverage, all served on ethical compostable dinnerware.  3.  Know that 100% of net proceeds of this purchase are going directly to feed the needy.  One for one:  every meal sold provides one homebound senior a warm meal.  Thank you to our ethical partners:  Lexus, St. Vincent Meals on Wheels, Fiji water, Pom Wonderful, Repurpose Now, Food & Wine Magazine, Nobu La, Vox Entertainment, and Wonderful Pistachios for making this happen.
