Eleven Madison Park, Daniel Humm’s celebrated fine-dining restaurant, is once again partnering with Rethink Food, NYC-based food nonprofit, to help feed New Yorkers in need. They are launching a food truck — called Eleven Madison Truck — on April 12 to serve 2,000 meals a week in neighbourhoods throughout the Bronx and Brooklyn, Bloomberg first reported.
The three Michelin-starred establishments had flipped their space to become a commissary kitchen early on during the pandemic. They donated up to 3,000 meals a day to collaborate with the nonprofit. According to Bloomberg, this new truck will be funded in part by diners who buy EMP’s to-go meals — will target areas challenged by food insecurity.
“We had been brainstorming different ways to make the restaurant part of the community and get staff engaged beyond making meals and pushing them out of the door,” Matt Jozwiak, Rethink’s co-founder and CEO, told Bloomberg. “And then Daniel called me and was, like, ‘Let’s do a food truck.’
