Soulgood Cares

Our mission is to save the planet, people and animals one plate at a time. Our founder believes charity starts at home and having a giving spirit, loving heart, open mind and caring about the community where you live and work creates a stronger union. 


Soulgood Cares is our social impact initiative designed to have a positive impact in the community we serve. Throughout the year, we host events where we feed homeless children, serve healthy plant-based foods at no cost in food deserts in underserved communities, participate in community health fairs and donate 5% of our revenue to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and other local charities. 

We are temporarily closed to the public to focus on building our new takeout vegan restaurant in West Dallas. We are accepting private catering requests and continuing our efforts to feed families in need in low-to-moderate income communities hit hard by COVID-19 and economic hardships.

The pandemic has created economic hardships for so many and we understand the holidays will be exceptionally difficult for some families. You can get involved by volunteering or contributing to our Soulgood Cares program. This Thanksgiving, we are accepting donations online to provide full holiday meals to families in need.


We will provide full vegan meals, for a family of 4, in need this holiday. To contribute click here and donate $144 for a full meal for a family or any amount you can. We appreciate our community, the love for others and will ensure we delivery healthy plant-based meals to families in need this holiday.  

There are three ways you can help us help others:


1) First option, you can make a donation to the Soulgood Cares' COVID-19 Disaster Relief Effort program below and select any amount you wish to contribute to support via PayPal or donate cleaning supplies that we can deliver to Cook Children's hospital to give to families with children with Cystic Fibrosis.

Why We Give

Tyler D. Nelson was born with a genetic disease called Cystic Fibrosis. In 2015, he transitioned due to complications from the disease. However, before the age of 17, Tyler was a published author, a speaker, an award-winning advocate for organ donation, and a friend to many around the world. Soulgood was created to honor the legacy of Tyler D. Nelson, son of Chef Cynthia and Jaroby Nelson. 


Through our Soulgood Cares social impact and charitable giving program we raise hundreds of dollars to serve healthy foods to homeless children, deliver plant-based food options to families in low-income and underserved communities, and hire parents of special needs or chronically-ill children to work on our food truck to earn extra income. We provide free plant-based health education programs online to provide recipes, tips and resources to live a healthier life. We also go a step further with each dollar earned, we donate 5% to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and other local tax-exempt charities that align with Soulgood's mission.
