At Grandma LuLu’s Table, we share our lives, great food is passed and no one… NO ONE leaves hungry. We would like you to be at the Table.
Grandma LuLu’s Table is a creative solution to the childhood hunger and malnutrition crisis in the San Diego area. We will meet the need where it is most needed – by taking a mobile kitchen to the places where hunger persists and offering a healthy, plant-based breakfast on weekends to people – especially children – in need.
Hunger starts in the morning. It wakes you up. It sets you off on the wrong foot. It distracts kids’ studies. And there are a lot of hungry people right here. According to the San Diego Hunger Coalition, about 1 in 7 people in San Diego County experienced food insecurity in 2017. That includes 141,000 children that are not getting enough to eat.
Our soultion is creative! People confronting hunger will get a breakfast delivered right to their neighborhood. And we will focus on feeding children. Supporting this campaign will help us:
• purchase and outfit a food truck so we can work in the neighborhoods that need it the most.
• provide a healthy, plant-based breakfast.
• link those with and without by creating volunteer opportunities to serve our patrons experiencing transitions in life.
• educate the community (especially children) that healthy, plant-based eating is easy, affordable and delicious.
This challenge is great and there are some obsticles ahead. Foremost, buying a mobile kitchen is expensive. We are currently writing grants and talking to businesses to help get us started. Another challenge for us is that the hunger crisis is growing, which is another reason why a mobile kitchen is a unique solution to this problem.
We need your help. Please consider a donation to our campaign, your support will bring the whole San Diego community to come together around the Table. With your support, we plan to start up operations by the end of summer. We will need funding, volunteers and your energy to get started!
