“Feed The People” is a monthly initiative to provide food insecure communities with Free Lunch Friday’s helping children and families affected by the loss of lunch programs they would normally get at local public schools.
DUB Brothers, a Los Angeles based company, and founders of the twenty year old Gobble Gobble Give Thanksgiving Day program, has expanded their philanthropic initiative FEED THE PEOPLE to bring sustenance to those facing food insecurities in cities across the country, starting with the city of Compton, CA. The FEED THE PEOPLE activation will provide “Free Lunch Friday” events with local restaurant partners and different local vendors, providing meals for children and families affected by the loss of lunch programs through school closures.
The first event will be in partnership with Cliff’s Texas Style Burritos (408 W Alondra Blvd. Compton, CA 90220) taking place on Friday, May 29, 2020 @ 12:00pm - 2:00pm;where patrons can enjoy the DUB Brothers’ world famous Vegan Chilli Cheese Dog cart along with Cliff’s tacos and side of their choice. Additionally DUB Brothers aims to support small businesses in the community by purchasing all food directly from vendors before each event. Cliff’s Texas Style Burritos has been a staple of the Compton community since 1992 and is a prime example of the hit small businesses have taken during this time. In this vein FEED THE PEOPLE aims to support the Compton community as a whole by compensating small businesses while giving back to local residents.
"We will always aim to have a positive impact on the community around us and have witnessed first-hand the hardships and chronic adversity that has affected so many families and children during this time. The sudden loss of these school lunches that most children depend on, hit home with us and with amazing local partners like Cliff's we hope to bring relief and a couple smiles to these families where we can." - Barry Walker, co-founder Dub Brothers
Founded by brothers Brent Walker and Barry Walker, DUB Brothers, a cannabis company, has made philanthropy a pillar of the company with annual events Gobble Gobble Give which feeds the homeless in 24 cities nationwide. In 2010, Skid Row Xmas was launched to provide supplies to homeless encampments on Downtown LA’s Skid Row during the December holidays. Now, FEED THE PEOPLE is the company’s newest initiative that will encompass their already established events along with newer activations taking place which have been inspired by the public’s struggles during the current COVID-19 pandemic crisis that all are experiencing.
'Cliffs' started with a humble $1 Hot Dog Cart in the City of Compton, before moving into a brick and mortar near Compton's Centennial High School serving authentic Mexican and American food. As one of the few African American Family Owned small businesses established by Cliff and Delores Williams and still serving in Los Angeles County and the City of Compton, since 1992, 'Cliffs' mission is to maintain our long time record of preparing excellent food with genuine care.
