A Taste of What We’ve Done

Roaming Hunger had the honor of partnering food trucks with hospitals, not-for-profits, and charitable allies during the COVID-19 pandemic to help feed frontline workers and the most vulnerable amongst us. We have been spreading change and cheer by rallying communities from the beaches of Los Angeles to the big buildings of New York.

Through online fundraisers, we were able to provide for clinics and hospitals all over the country. One of our food truck vendors, Achara, partnered with us to donate over 100 hot meals to essential workers at Kaiser West LA. Socially distant, outdoor food truck catering kept frontline workers energized and able to keep doing their essential tasks during such a trying time.

Community Building Through Food

An important lesson we’ve learned over the last few years is that it’s important to bring together those who feed the community and those who keep the community healthy. Good food and physical health have always been linked, but when caterers are given the chance to support caregivers, more than a meal is shared.

During our pandemic-era GoFundMe campaigns for health centers all over the nation, we found that stories of hope, gratitude, and connection came out of these collaborations. Food and the people who served it were a lighthouse for frontliners, showing them that they weren’t forgotten. In fact, they were celebrated with every dish served. Show health providers that you’ve put your heart into this Hospital Week—because when stomachs are full, hearts are happy.
