The men and women who lead LETTUM EAT! Inc. on the board of directors and our executive team are dedicated Servants from a variety of backgrounds all dedicated to hunger relief in our Communities
Volunteerism and Service are Core Values of LETTUM EAT! Inc. We are proud to partner with local Religious, Private and Government Organizations as well as Public Educational Programs to build a multitude of volunteer teams and battle hunger in our Communities. Join us in this value-adding endeavor to help others.
Every community in the country is home to people who struggle with hunger. Since federal nutrition programs don’t reach everyone in need, food banks help fill the gap. Learn more about local food insecurity by exploring data from Feeding America’s annual Map the Meal Gap study. When we better understand hunger, we can help end hunger.
An estimated 25–40% of food grown, processed and transported in the U.S. will never be consumed. And more food reaches landfills than any other single material in municipal solid waste.
LETTUM EAT! Inc. has programs to work with manufacturers, distributors, grocers, restaurants and farmers to gather food before it goes to waste.
LETTUM EAT! Inc. is a mobile food service providing free meals to food insecure individuals and families in local Communities. Our Mission is Mobile Food Provisions Prepared with Care and Served with Compassion to those in Need. We are engaging a large network of resources involving experienced Chefs and Restaurant Professionals and partnering with local Churches, Restaurants and Grocery Stores with a formula that will impact Hunger in our Communities in a major way. Simply put there are Food Service Professionals eager to do something to with their skills and bless those who could not afford their services otherwise. There are Churches with unused Professional Kitchens. And, there are Grocery Stores and Restaurants throwing away food at an alarming rate, not because the food is bad, but because of the standards Society creates for Food Quality Controls. LETTUM EAT! Inc. has taken the parameters of those opportunities and developed a plan with the implementation of mobile food trucks to bring relief to individuals and families suffering from Food Insecurity.
Our short-term goals involve strategic partnerships with a multitude of Churches that have professional food service provisions like commercial ovens, hood systems, walk-in refrigeration and dry storage. The Program involves initiating food drives and engaging their congregations with events that will yield meals for recipients of our services. We will also immediately employ the use of vehicles to take advantage of food donations and deliveries of prepackaged meals that meet our safe food-handling protocols.
Long-term goals involve the addition of multiple Food Trucks and either the lease or purchase of property and a facility which will be used to receive, store, prepare and package meals for mass distribution.
We here at LETTUM EAT! Inc. have identified some areas in our communities that our organization will address. Homelessness and Hunger being synonymous goes without saying, but there is an epidemic of Extended Stay Motel families in our Communities. These common temporary housing situations create challenges in securing regular meals and will be a target of opportunity for LETTUM EAT! Inc. Title One Schools in certain Communities are also indicators of low-income families with high rates of Free and Reduced Lunch Programs in the local schools. LETTUM EAT! Inc. recognizes the opportunity here during summers and holidays when schools are not in session.
LETTUM EAT! Inc. is proud to be supplemental support for outstanding existing programs in the Community. Churches that participate in Backpack Buddy Programs, Food Banks and Can Food Drives are vital to the families that benefit from them. So, here’s how we are different. There are so many gracious individuals and organizations that offer food relief on occasions and holidays… but people are hungry every day. We are structured to exist as a fully functioning, seven day a week operation. We are former Restaurant and Food Service Professionals who never had the option to be closed, always had to be there and are trained to serve. Imagine a restaurant that gives away great food instead of selling it to you, and then they brought it to you… “Mobile Food Provisions”, professionals taking what they do serious, using all required standards and regulations in their preparations… “Prepared with Care”, delivered to sociable sites by caring individuals with a love for people and hearts for fellowship… “Served with Compassion”, the only catch is, the service is… “to those in Need”. LETTUM EAT! Inc. is here to help.
We can not and should not do this alone. It cost less than $10 to feed a family of 5. Go to www.lettumeat.com/give-today to help. Think about this… What if you were hungry?
