The Torch is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to serving the state of Michigan and California, by utilizing a mobile food truck to, cook and serve, 100% free freshly prepared meals to our neighbors. The Torch also utilizes catering trucks to distribute fresh groceries to communities with food insecure challenges.
We have had to choose between putting gas in our cars to get to work, or driving to the food bank. We know what it feels like to be a single parent living paycheck to paycheck, or trying to survive with disability pay. We never want anyone to feel as helpless and hopeless as we did, so we decided to use our food truck, and catering trucks, to bring the help right to those who may need it.
We drive our food truck/catering trucks directly into neighborhoods so we can meet people where they live, and remove barriers they may be facing for receiving help. It is our goal to serve people with dignity and respect and to build relationships with our neighbors.
- The Torch is founded on the guarantee every cent donated will go back into the organization and be used to serve our community.
- ALL donations go towards the purchase of food, cutlery, gas and maintenance for the food truck and catering truck.
- EVERY person, including the founder, volunteers his/her time to operate The Torch.
