Bread & Chocolate Vegan Bistro donates plant based meals to seniors

For the past month, in a partnership with Meals on Wheels (MOW) plant-based restaurant, Bread and Chocolate Vegan Bistro, has been supplying meals to local seniors who prefer or require plant-based food.

Bread and Chocolate has been contributing the first 3 meals at no cost and in order to meet the demand of over 20 meals a day, the restaurant has set up a program where the restaurant matches dollar-for-dollar every donation that it receives from its generous customers.

Demand has been high for the service, so Bread & Chocolate is appealing to the public for its support. "A donation of $12 provides 2 meals to our seniors who prefer vegetarian or vegan choices; however, we accept donations of any denomination," explains the team at Bread & Chocolate.

 

"Not only is Meals On Wheels our best option, but it is also the most direct way to impact the community," says Reno Ciantar, owner of Bread and Chocolate.

"For Meals On Wheels, the direct impact is so real and yet unmeasurable because keeping the seniors and high risk at home is literally saving lives," says Jennifer West of Meals on Wheels. "One of our newest meal recipients who got a meal from Bread and Chocolate yesterday expressed her gratitude for the meal and raved about how delicious it was and how thankful she was for not just a delicious meal but a plant-based meal. This lady has severe health issues and had been struggling to get food; she never would have expected a meal that meets her health needs."
