Now more than ever, the global community is working together for the health of humanity and the planet we share. A coalition of leading plant-based restaurants and movement leaders around the country including Veggie Grill, Native Foods, HipCityVeg, Plant Power Fast Food, Next Level Burger, Happy Cow, Eat for the Planet, 80/20 Plants and more are banding together to throw a Plant-Based Party for the Planet that provides food for those in need during the COVID-19 crisis.
On May 1–3, vegans, vegetarians, flexitarians, omnivores and carnivores are encouraged to order a 100% plant-based meal from any restaurant and post a photo of it on social media with the hashtag #PlantBasedParty.
For every #PlantBasedParty mention, Beyond Meat will donate one meal to organizations in need, including food banks and frontline workers (up to 100,000 meals). DoorDash will donate $5 for every #PlantBasedParty hashtag (up to $30,000) to Support + Feed.
Support + Feed is the brainchild of Maggie Baird, the mother of global pop-phenom Billie Eilish and FINNEAS. The initiative delivers plant-based meals directly to first responders, hospitals, homeless shelters and women and senior centers through donations made to plant-based restaurants who are suffering as a result of the current pandemic.
“This is a time we all need to band together, so we’re honored to partner with our plant-based friends to throw a party assisting those in need right now,” said T.K. Pillan, Veggie Grill Co-Founder. “We have been inspired by the amazing work Maggie and the Support + Feed team have been doing for both plant-based restaurants and the community during the crisis, so this is an impactful way we can assist with their efforts and also do our part to save the planet.”
“We are excited to partner with Veggie Grill and the other great restaurants to promote plant-based meals and the restaurants serving them all around the country,” said Maggie Baird, Support + Feed Founder. “This is a wonderful way to help feed people in need, and make our planet a better place in the process.”
