Mars Best Brisket
Mars' Best Brisket is an audio comedy charity event! During the week of September 20th, not only will we be releasing three hilarious scifi restaurant sitcom episodes, we'll also be attempting to raise $1000 for The Lovin' Spoonfuls, a food rescue here in Boston, Massachusetts.
The Audio Comedy
Mars’ Best Brisket is an audio comedy that follows Herbert and Olaf, a gay couple who have moved to Mars and opened up the very first brisket restaurant. (Vegan brisket of course. No grass, means no cows, which means all the brisket has to be made of Improbable Meat.) Each episode draws upon a classic restaurant sitcom trope and adds a sci-fi, hopepunk spin. The cast is comprised of some of the funniest folks in the audio fiction, and a few extra special guests!
Lovin’ Spoonfuls is a food rescue in Boston, Massachusetts, dedicated to facilitating the rescue and distribution of healthy, fresh food that would otherwise be discarded. They pick up wholesome, perishable food from grocery stores, produce wholesalers, farms and farmers markets, and distribute it to over 170 nonprofits that feed people facing food insecurity across Massachusetts. They use a direct distribution system to pick up and deliver food within the same day, focusing on fresh fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, dairy and whole grains. Through Lovin’ Spoonfuls’ simple but effective model, food vendors are able to reduce their waste disposal costs and emissions footprint while making a tax-deductible food contribution to their community. Lovin’ Spoonfuls’ believes that good food is a right, not a privilege, and that everyone deserves access to fresh, healthy food.
During the week of September 20th, we will be opening up a crowdfunding campaign to try and raise $1000 for Lovin’ Spoonfuls. Throughout the week, the podcast feed will see not only all three episodes, but also interviews with members of the Lovin’ Spoonfuls team and updates on how the campaign is going. In addition to the crowdfunding campaign, we’ll also be selling Mars’ Best merch through RedBubble, and donating the profits to Lovin’ Spoonfuls on a recurring basis.
So how can you help?
First off, on this very page is a button that says donate, where you can make a monetary contribution to your campaign. Second, if you head over to marsbestmerch.com, you can buy t-shirts, posters, stickers and more, the proceeds for which all go to The Lovin Spoonfuls.
But we understand that not everyone is in a place to make a donation, and that's ok. We need your help spreading the word. Consider making a post to your social media with some of the details of our campaign! Here are some details you might want to include!
We've also made it really easy for your to share our link by setting up marsbestcharity.com to send folks right here!
