Food Not Bombs Donation Center now at Meraki’s
At Meraki Salon, we strive to use our platform and public reach to give back to our community. This month, we’re excited to announce that we will be accepting donations for Food Not Bombs of Raleigh.
What is it?
The FNB Raleigh chapter is dedicated to combating food deserts by offering vegan and vegetarian options to anyone who needs it — No questions asked. They are a mutual aid project, not a charity, providing and advocating for healthy food options, educational resources, and indiscriminately sharing support.
While the Meraki team came to a vote on this particular organization as a way to give back locally, it’s held near and dear as I myself have relied on food banks in the past, and personally love the idea of being able to contribute vegan, vegetarian, and better quality food options to those who need it now.
How can you help?
As of June 1st, select stylists at both Meraki locations will be extending discounted services to guests with donations. We ask that all food donations be VEGAN, and strongly recommend bringing specific items that are listed. The list will be updated frequently to keep up with needs in real time.
We appreciate everyone who has already donated, and we are beyond thrilled to be able to give back to our community in any measure we can, especially as we strive to maintain this as a long term endeavor. Thanks so much for your support in this effort.
Michelle and the Meraki Team
