Help a Denver Vet Feed the Hungry

This past year Michael Gropper, started a business, Full Battle Rattle Deli, a food truck that, in his own words, is a "vehicle for change" and the nonprofit Culinary Arts Boot Camp. The goal is to teach and certify veterans for food industry skills through on the job training in the food truck and get jobs in the industry. 

Mike has poured his heart, soul, and life savings into the truck. He is still going out there every day to feed the hungry at churches, shelters, hospitals. He needs the funds both to keep the truck operating and pay for his own living expenses.

As noted above, this is no ordinary food truck, but a food truck with a mission. To lose this social enterprise, as a result of COVID 19 would be a big loss to the veteran community and the needy of Denver as a whole. In the short time that we have been in operation, we have touched many lives, started to build a strong client base. We were on the path to making the Food Truck a viable business, and the culinary arts program had just begun. All this has changed dramatically due to the present situation.

Your support and donations will make the difference we need to get financially sound again and overcome the struggles we are facing during this pandemic while continuing our mission for all the community.
