It might not be the fanciest food truck on the block, but it’s definately doing the most good! If you see a 1975 Ford School Bus driving around in the next couple weeks, don’t run away from it – donate to it! The bus (bought on CraigsList for $1,000), is part of an AWESOME cause called Stuff the Bus, which is aiming to raise 5,000 pounds of food (it’s already at 2,000 pounds) for the DC Central Kitchen. By taking a mobile food truck approach to the drive (dubbed a “mobile fresh food drive”), Stuff the Bus is driving around town until Friday, September 30th, making stops throughout the area to collect food for DCCK! The drive is being hosted by fabulous restaurants, very cool celebrities, and even Erica and myself!
The Chocolate & Stilettos team will be hosting the bus next Wednesday, September 28th, from 6pm to 7 pm at Birch & Barley in the 14th Street Corridor! Come see us and donate non-pershiable food OR buy DCCK much needed produce from the bus’ virtual store! If you can’t make it to see us, check out the Stuff the Bus schedule to find out when they’ll be in your neighborhood!
