Our mission is to put healthy plant-based foods into the hands of adults and children across America. We support tax-exempt nonprofit organizations that help to improve the quality of life of the people they serve.
Giving back is a part of who we are and what we do because for every item you buy from us we donate 5% to two charities that are near and dear to our soul. We are proud to donate 5% of every sale to Kids Environmental Education Network, Inc. (KEEN Group) and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Inc. (CFF).
Our donation is a soulful gesture to help encourage more children to plant their own foods, eat healthier meals, and to support research to find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis. So, when you buy, we give. Giving is good for the soul.
Would you like to get involved?
There are numerous volunteer opportunities for fellow Soulstirrers who would like to teach healthy eating classes, sustainable gardening, environmental education or cooking classes to underserved children in local urban and rural communities. This year, we are introducing a new initiative called, “Gifts to Tyler.” There are over 4,000 homeless children in Dallas Independent School District today. We can only imagine how challenging it can be for a child to perform academically if they are hungry. Our son, Tyler, loved preparing meals and feeding the homeless with our family. In honor of him, on Friday, May 19, 2017, Tyler Nelson’s birthday, our food truck will feed homeless children at a local shelter from 6:00pm – 7:30pm. Our Gifts to Tyler program will continue to serve healthy plant-based foods from our food truck every month thereafter with help from our Soulstirrers like you.
