Feeding the food insecure in LA

I own and operate The Fix on Wheels, a gourmet burger truck in Los Angeles which has been open since March 2017. As we navigate these tough times I want to first say a deep thank you to all of you and especially the Bel Air Association for supporting my truck and others. You have helped keep us in business during this time and your extra generosity has allowed us to feed first responders via our first GoFundMe campaign when they were absolutely critical back at the beginning in March, April and May. We raised over $5000 and fed first responders at the LAFD, LAPD, St. John’s Hospital, UCLA Medical Center and St. Francis Medical Center, among others. Now we are asking for your help to feed the food insecure in LA. We all have read so many stories about food pantries and banks being unable to keep up with the food insecure and how many families cannot even get out to the pantries and banks to stand in line and pick up food. This GoFundMe is to raise money to feed the food insecure in Los Angeles by bringing meals to them. Food trucks are uniquely equipped to do this because we are mobile kitchens and a hot free meal would probably do wonders for their community and morale. We would premake several hundred identical meals and distribute them. For $8 a meal (far less than we usually charge) we could do this and we could get other trucks involved if we need to scale this (hopefully we will!). This would help the food trucks which are struggling but most importantly feed people who are having a very difficult time right now. Thanks for reading this and thank you for the support. Please follow us on social media at Facebook and Twitter at @thefixonwheels and via Instagram at @thefixtruck for updates on where we will be.
