Cutting Board Cafe Cares
Organized by: Alexis Darby
The Cutting Board Bakery and Cafe is an organic, vegan bakery and cafe located in Mesa, Arizona. Owned and operated by Sean and Krystal Macdonald, the Cutting Board's motto is 'Learn, Eat, Live,' and they have achieved this through numerous community outreach programs. These include documentary screenings, public speakers, seminars, and many more events which educate and inform the community on their health, their futures, and veganism.
The Cutting Board Cafe and its employees have had a desire to give back to the community in a unique way, something never before seen anywhere in Arizona. This new outreach program is called, 'Cutting Board Cafe Cares,' and they are asking you for your help. The community is being asked to nominate families in the Mesa, Arizona area who are in need of groceries and a good meal. The Cutting Board Cafe will use the funds raised via this crowdfunding campaign to:
-Provide one vegan, organic meal to a nominated family (quarterly)
-Provide organic, vegan groceries for the nominated family for one week
All funds will go toward the chosen family for the quarter. An estimated $275 will need to be raised per family in order to provide the best quality organic, vegan groceries and meal. If multiple families are nominated in one quarter, the names will be drawn randomly and the rest of the families will be kept on file for another chance at another quarter. If the goal funds are raised before the end of the three months, a new rotation will begin. Once a family has been chosen, the nominator will be notified. Funds will continue to be raised even if no family has been chosen to receive the meal.
If you decide to nominate a family, please do so secretly so it will be a surprise for the family! Please include each family member's name, their ages, their favorite Cutting Board dishes (if applicable), least favorite foods (if applicable) and address and phone number of the family. Also include your information as a nominator so we can remain in touch. The Cutting Board Cafe will be doing this program quarterly to ensure that they can help as many Mesa area families as they can.
For more details, and to nominate a family, please contact Cutting Board Cafe employee, Alexis Darby at firstname.lastname@example.org with all of the necessary requirements to nominate a family or if you have any questions.
