The restaurant industry has taken a major hit as they’ve been asked to shut their doors for safety during the COVID-19 crisis, and our favorite vegan restaurants are no exception. At the same time, the resources of hospitals, homeless shelters, and senior centers are stretched incredibly thin.
Support + Feed was created by Grammy award-winning vegan artist Billie Eilish and her mom, Maggie Baird, to ensure that a wide range of vulnerable people are catered to safely during COVID-19 and that local vegan restaurants are able to make enough money to pay their staff.
The concept is simple: donate a meal through your favorite plant-based restaurant. The restaurant benefits from much-needed income, and the food goes to help people and institutions in need.
Starting this week, Support + Feed will work with 11 Los Angeles vegan restaurants to deliver meals to major hospitals, food shelters, housing and women’s shelters, senior centers, and police stations.
If you’re currently in a position to support this effort and wish to get involved, simply choose and click on a restaurant from the list below. Once on their site, look for “Order,” or some mention of “Support and Feed” for instructions (or, call and give the order over the phone).
