Huge Shout Out to Pho An and Kaffeeklatsch for June Donations

As of July 8 2020 the Food Is Love Project in Lake City has worked with local restaurants and neighborhood volunteers to deliver over 7,000 freshly prepared meals to families in the north end.

We want to acknowledge the incredible generosity of Pho An who worked with their property managers, SR Investments (property owned by Lake City Acres LLC and 12530 Lake City LLC) to donate meals throughout the month of June. We were also fortunate to have Kaffeeklatsch donate a days meals to the effort in June as well. Please be sure to thank Pho An and Annette at the Kaffeeklatsch for their generosity next time you order from them.

The Food is Love Project has a new web page ( and FareStart has become the fiscal sponsor for the program. If you are able please consider donating to this effort by visiting the site so that we can ensure we can continue to bring revenue to local businesses and good food to families in need across the district throughout the summer months.

Huge thank you to Gyro Lake City, Jose’s Taqueria, Pho An, Kaffeeklatsch, Villa Verdi and Beyond the Bowl for regularly working with us. Be sure to support them as you are able. To our incredible group of volunteers: Zoe, Ann, Kristen, Henry, Lina, Aiden, Suzanne, Jessica, Nicole, Ardel, Stephanie, Carie, Amber,  Nimi and Alyssa – we couldn’t do it without you!
