Feeding San Diego disabled veterans COVID-19

At Park 734 Kitchen our kitchen manager, Kevin Inman, is making and distributing meals to quarantined senior disabled veterans in downtown San Diego. 

Many senior disabled veterans already live on very meager means and depend on local non-profits for food.  Because of all kinds of government agencies shutting down over COVID-19 lots of veterans will not have access to the prepared meals they once depended on before the pandemic. 

Kevin is a senior disabled veteran himself and works as the kitchen manager at Park 734 Kitchen in East Village. Park 734 Kitchen is a commercial rental kitchen used by many of your favorite farmers market vendors, local bakers, small pop-ups, etc. to prepare their food. www.park734kitchen.com.


When Kevin's apartment, which is filled with mostly senior disabled veterans, was put on a mandatory quarantine he knew he had to do something to help. So he decided to make good use of the late night hours available to him for free at the commercial rental kitchen he manages and make meals for his neighbors. All out of his own pocket.

What we need is either food donations from restaurants, cash donations so we can buy more food as well as a few more volunteers. 

We are trying to raise $9000 as we plan to do this for the next 6 weeks in hopes that the shelter in place order will end by then. But we will continue on until things are back to normal.  It costs us $3 a meal and right now we are supporting 60 veterans with one large meal 7 days a week. Therefore, we need about $1500 a week to afford all the food we need. There are no other expenses outside of the food, containers and cleaning supplies we are buying.                                     
Any additional funds that we raise that we do not put directly into the food for veterans will be donated to the Alpha Project. www.alphaproject.com

Thank you so much for your support and prayers!
