Michelle Carrera, Chilis on Wheels (2015 Impact Grant)
Chilis on Wheels (COW) distributes vegan chili to people in need of a warm meal. They offer Emergency Food Distribution, Vegan Emergency Dog Food Distribution, Vegan Education, and Youth Engagement through volunteer-run chapters in NYC, San Diego, Portland, Denver, and Puerto Rico. Working with youth volunteers, they distribute food to the homeless and the food-insecure (including dogs), as well as spread a message of veganism, empathy and kindness for all. Their impact grant will be used for infrastructure support as they continue to grow.
