America's Disaster Relief
Finalist, Best at Grassroots Marketing
2500 50th Ave. N St Petersburg
America’s Disaster Relief helps families get back on their feet after disasters like floods or other catastrophic events. Its mobile kitchen travels to affected areas to feed those in need; when not in use during a disaster, the mobile kitchen raises funds by selling tamales and other Mexican dishes at events. The organization is a nationwide nonprofit but each state is self-supporting. Jan France opened the Florida division spring 2011.
Here are excerpts from their application for LocalShops1's 2014 Best in Biz Awards:
"In a very short time, America’s Disaster Relief has gone from not only having NO Grass or ANY Roots in Florida, to being a recognized effort in the Tampa Bay Area --- often having to turn down invitations for events - all with The Red Mobile Kitchen. So when disaster strikes the Tampa Bay Area, not only are there supplies to pass out to victims – people will be eating FREE from The Red Mobile Kitchen."
"People flag The Red Mobile Kitchen down on the highways, The Red Mobile Kitchen is followed into parking lots – so many people want to support America’s Disaster Relief and eat from the famous The Red Mobile Kitchen."
