GLIDE’s “Daily Free Meals” program is the only San Francisco service to provide three nutritious meals per day - 364 days a year - to the city's poor, homeless and hungry, all offered within an atmosphere of respect, acceptance and compassion. Through their partnership, for every purchase made at Urban Remedy’s site during March, using coupon code "URCARES,” a full day of healthy, nutritious food will be donated to GLIDE in an effort to bring more nutritious meals to people in need.
“GLIDE is tirelessly working to help fight hunger on a local level,” says Urban Remedy’s founder, Neka Pasquale, L.Ac. M.S. “We have a shared mission to nourish the community in a thoughtful, helpful and educational manner. Everyone should have access to healthy and nutritious food.”
In 2013, Urban Remedy’s partnership with GLIDE resulted in more than 450 meals provided for people in the San Francisco Bay area. This year, Urban Remedy’s objective is to more than double the number of meals donated given the recent expansion of their innovative menu offerings and nationwide delivery.
"We are thankful that Urban Remedy has returned to help us raise awareness and resources for families in need," says Janice Mirikitani, co-founder of GLIDE. "We are enormously appreciative of their consistent support and help in finding influential ways to achieve wellness for all."
At the end of National Nutrition Month, Neka and her team will visit GLIDE to spend the day volunteering and to present the community with Urban Remedy’s donation. For more on Urban Remedy, please visit http://www.UrbanRemedy.com.
