On Thursday, February 22nd Positively Caviar, Inc. took a healthy bite out of hunger with their very first healthy food drive event, managing to turn a Thursday Happy Hour into a great time with all intensive purposes of conquering their goal of taking a healthy route toward eradicating hunger in the DC area. More than 30 people came out to Amsterdam Café and Lounge to show their support.
By approaching a typical food drive in a more unique way, Positively Caviar was able to make a deeper impact by sharing messaging, “A healthy mind starts with a healthy diet.” The goal was to combat hunger but also to ensure that by feeding America’s hungry they were being encouraged to live a healthier lifestyle with a healthier diet.
Supporters were able to make food and monetary donations to help reach the goal of combating hunger. Positively Caviar members went a step further the next day by visiting a local grocery store to purchase all healthy options with the monetary donations received.
On Friday, February 23rd Positively Caviar was able to personally fulfill their goal donating over 265+ items to Bread for The City. The mission of this organization is to help Washington, DC residents living with low income to develop the power to determine the future of their own communities. Each month, Bread for the City’s two food pantries provide nutritious groceries to more than 8,400 clients living near the federal poverty line. Food donations included fruits and vegetables proteins, daily, pasta.
Positively Caviar ended Black History Month and National Canned Food Month with a bang through the healthy food donations and positive vibrations that resulted from this food drive. “It was a powerful experience to bring together friends, family, and new supporters for a great cause” Chief Program Officer, Shayma Sulaiman, proclaimed. “I have a strong belief that if you put good into the universe good comes back to you tenfold”.
