Slutty Vegan has partnered with plant-based startup Impossible Foods to donate thousands of meatless burgers to essential workers in Atlanta, U.S. – as the coronavirus (Covid-19) crisis continues.
The eatery will gift the food to the Atlanta Fire Rescue Foundation and the Atlanta Police Department on selected dates throughout June. A service titled ATLStrong, which compiles emergency foods orders needed due to the pandemic will then follow.
‘Risking their lives’
According to VegWorld Magazine, Founder and CEO of Slutty Vegan Pinky Cole said: “We are appreciative of our essential workers as they have been spending countless hours to help us push through this pandemic.
“They are risking both their lives and time away from their families to make sure our city stays strong in our fight.”
Feed A Million+
Plant-based meat competitor Beyond Meat has also committed to helping those in need during the Covid-19 crisis.
The company has launched its Feed A Million+ pledge to feed frontline workers, food banks, and other organizations.
