Enriched Foods Miami is an innovative new charity that will meet two important needs in Miami-Dade County: 


1. To eliminate food waste due to rejection/disposal of produce and other items with short shelf lives by grocery stores, and excess produce supply of farmers. 
2. To provide nutritious meals to Miami's homeless population, which has reached 3543, according to the Miami-Dade Homeless Trust. 

This organization is innovative because we plan to purchase a food truck to bring the meals to people in need, rather than requiring people with limited resources to come to a shelter or other brick and mortar location. There are several locations in the county with a high concentration of homeless people (Virginia Key, Overtown, Midtown) and we will prepare meals for people in these and other areas on site, increasing their accessibility to healthy meals. 

 

Donations will be utilized to:

-recover these food items, which are generally offered at a discounted price;

-secure facilities for food storage; 

-purchase a food truck and cover costs associated with permits and storage of the truck.


Work has already begun to make this dream a reality, I hope you are willing to donate to this cause.   

My educational and professional background is in accounting but my passion is cooking. I have decided to combine my business experience and my passion in this charity to raise awareness and help those in need. So many people find pleasure and comfort in food, please help those in Miami that may not regularly be able to have this experience. 

 

“Food is everything we are. It's an extension of nationalist feeling, ethnic feeling, your personal history, your province, your region, your tribe, your grandma. It's inseparable from those from the get-go.” 
― Anthony Bourdain 

"If it works here, why not in your city".

Thank you 

Johan
