Cart for a Cause Hits the Streets

It’s a natural. Tomorrow, the Cart for a Cause, the country’s first philanthropic food truck, serves its first chef-made lunches here in L.A.

Tuesdays through November, catch this big red food truck and you can buy a great $10 lunch (includes beverage!) prepared by one of L.A.’s finest chefs. Added value: $6.50 of that goes directly to St. Vincent Meals on Wheels, the program that delivers meals to homebound people in need. It brings a whole new meaning — and revenue stream — to  “meals on wheels.”

Bring a few buddies because Cart for a Cause is a one-for-one deal: For every lunch you buy, a warm meal is delivered to a needy person, most often a senior who can’t make his/her own.  And what a lunch you’ll be buying! Some of L.A.’s best-loved chefs are on board, beginning with Nobu Matsuhisa and Alex Becker of Nobu, who will be in charge of the lunch truck’s menu for first two weeks.

Look for Becker at the truck window tomorrow, Tuesday March 23,  at the UTA building, 9650 Wilshire Blvd., Beverly Hills from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m.

In coming weeks, Cart for a Cause features meals by participating chefs including Josef Centeno of Lazy Ox Canteen, Jean Francois Meteigner of La Cachette Bistro, Sal Marino of Il Grano, Susan Feniger of Street, Vinny Dotolo and Jon Shook of Animal and others.

What a way to catch up with what these creative cooks can do. Why not follow Cart for a Cause all over town? Locations will be posted at Facebook and Twitter.
