Eat for Equity
A New Take on the Moveable Feast
There are lots of soup kitchens scattered throughout the country with a typical paradigm that requires donations of food, volunteers, and large dinning and kitchen spaces to operate.
Eat for Equity is sort of a mobile version of the soup kitchen with an added twist that requires either a donation or dish washing etc. The Co-founder Emily Torgrimson of Minneapolis, MN came up with the idea in 2005 when she decided that she wanted to help the victims of hurricane Katrina.
The nonprofit offers communal, locally sourced feasts to support various charitable causes
and has raised some $166,000 for organizations like Oxfam America and Kids in Crisis.
Torgrimson recently set out in an RV trailer renovated as a mobile kitchen, organizing dinners in eight cities.
What a great way to raise money for charity. It keeps expenses down, draws community participation: through their stomachs and brings much needed support for kids in crisis.
