SevaTruck Whats Next Food Truck Line Small

The food insecurity rate in Virginia is 11.8%, Maryland with 11.4%, and Washington D.C. at 14.5%, making D.C. the 6th highest food insecurity rate in the nation.

As part of a more comprehensive solution, SevaTruck aims to establish consistent and long-term partnerships with Title I schools and organizations offering services to underserved youth that currently do not offer meal programs. Doing so allows us to fill a gap with current programmatic efforts and contribute to a lasting impact.

Our Impact

Serving hot, nutritious, vegetarian meals promotes healthy eating and provides a diet optimized for students.

Findings show that a child with a healthy diet will be more attentive in school, perform better at tasks, and will be more physically and mentally prepared for studying, and energized for extra-curricular activities.

What’s Next

Through the combination of our suppliers, partners, volunteers and the generous contributions of our donors, we have served over 102,000 meals since our first event in April 2016. We have also successfully expanded a second truck serving Detroit, Michigan.

However, success is not measured by meal counts alone. In 2019, we hope to expand our operations by building a stationary kitchen, and altogether serve 40,000 meals between D.C. and Michigan. We also aim to develop a study with partners and food security advocates that allows us to capture measures of our impact.

As of June 21, 2020 we have served

38,133 Meals

Our delicious burritos can get very creative having veggies like :red beet, zucchini, cauliflower, carrot, chick pea, cabbage, corn, mushroom, peas, broccoli, potatoes, olives and other seasonal vegetables. In addition, add cilantro and parsley for an extra touch, paprika and garlic for extra flavors and voila- you have a delicious, healthy and nutritious burrito hand rolled with love❤️ Pure perfection! #healthylifestyle #healthyfood #healthycooking #love #eatyourveggies #communitysupport #seva #freemeals #foodtruck #servingothers #dmv #nonprofitlife
