The D O double G aka Snoop Dogg a long time supporter, investor and ambassador of Beyond Meat is helping the company donate plant-based vegan Beyond Burgers to healthcare workers on the frontlines of the current COVID-19 pandemic caused by eating animals.
The famous rapper and father of four posted on his instagram:
“Beyond Meat has made a pledge to donate over one million Beyond Burgers to those in need during these challenging times I’m proud to be a part of it.”
Snoop sent the Beyond Burgers on over to the Martin Luther King Jr. Community Hospital in Southern Los Angeles.
He joins comedian Kevin Hart who has also recently helped give out Beyond Burgers to healthcare professionals at the Northridge Hospital Medical Center.
“We are dedicated to making sure those who need it most right now have access to a good, nourishing meal at no cost,” brand Beyond Meat posted on Instagram.
Beyond Meat is working tirelessly to get their burgers into the hands and stomachs of those on the frontlines fighting the virus saying:
“Our community of employees, ambassadors, and friends are coming together to help us donate and distribute over one million Beyond Burgers, Our goal has always been to use food as a vehicle for change. We’re fortunate to be in a position to put that into action now like never before.“
Even the San Francisco-based food delivery service DoorDash is getting in on the campaign and delivering Beyond Meat’s delicious burgers free of charge both there and in both Los Angeles and hard-hit New York City.
With more than 188,000 confirmed cases in the state of New York, it is officially the worst-hit place in the world with coronavirus. The United States itself has passed over half a million cases currently with more than 561,000 confirmed cases.
This is all part of Beyond Meats “Feed 1 Million+” campaign we previously reported on but they’re not the only ones stepping up.
Even famous pop star Billie Eilish’s mom Maggie Baird is helping feed key workers with plant-based vegan foods in these unprecedented times as California currently pushes over 21,000 cases.
Baird is working in conjunction with multiple organizations including Eat Drink Vegan and her own organization “Support and Feed”.
Her initiative has partnered with numerous plant-based vegan restaurants throughout Los Angeles and New York to feed not only those on the front lines but also those in vulnerable populations like the homeless and poor.
They’ve set up a system involving organization Conscious Cleanup (an eco motivated waste service) where customers can place an order with a partnered vegan restaurant under the “Support and Feed” initiative and the orders will be consolidated and delivered to those in need.
