Our mission at Freedom is to provide hope, support, and training to adult survivors of human trafficking so they can live a life of freedom gained through self-sufficiency. Through offering dignified work, structure, training, and practical life-skills support, Freedom a la Cart is a place where survivors can heal, learn, and grow as they prepare for full-time employment opportunities in the community.

In 2009, our founders established Doma as a community-based support program for adult survivors of human trafficking.  Two years later they expanded the program to fill the void between restoration and economic independence, and purchased a food cart as a work force training tool for survivors. While Doma offered supportive services toward restoration, Freedom a la Cart gave survivors a job and means to live.  Freedom became the vehicle – literally – through which survivors began the ever important first steps to self-sufficiency.


Today, we are so much more!  What was once a single food cart is now a bustling box lunch and full-service catering company, grown from the hearts and hard work of the women who sustain us.  The 2014 merge of the Doma and Freedom a la Cart combined support services with social enterprise through one deliciously harmonious brand.


As these amazing women continue on their journey of rescue, rehabilitation and restoration – the ultimate path toward a triumphant return to society – the result couldn’t be more appetizing: Cause Cuisine.


To deliver a genuine culinary experience to our patrons, Freedom a la Cart creates fresh, flavorful food full of eclectic , unexpected choices.  Whenever possible, we choose local sources for our ingredients, giving back to the community that gives so much to us.
