Slutty Vegan has shown it’s more than just an eatery for customers to get their late-night vegan burger fix. The restaurant, which was founded by Clark Atlanta University graduate Aisha “Pinky” Cole, is also focused on helping out the community.
Recently, Slutty Vegan partnered with the founder and CEO’s nonprofit, The Pinky Cole Foundation, to assist residents living at National Church Residences, a senior care facility. The groups donated vegan burgers to the Baptist Gardens and Baptist Towers communities.
“Residents of Senior Living facilities are identified as high risk,” the @pinkygivesback Instagram caption read in part. “We are proud to help in any way that we can. Please send your support to the staff working tirelessly to ensure the safety of our community elders during #COVID19.”
Cole’s nonprofit organization aims to empower communities of color to achieve their financial and entrepreneurial dreams.
On Slutty Vegan’s official Instagram page, the caption reads, “Thanks to everyone at Baptist Gardens for allowing us to share our good vibes & cheer!”
This is not the first donation the eatery has made amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Last week, Slutty Vegan and The Pinky Cole Foundation partnered to donate free meals to health care workers at Northside Hospital’s Women’s Center.
Slutty Vegan announced March 17 it would close to the general public, which frequently wraps lines around the food truck and the restaurant in Atlanta’s Westview neighborhood, “to reduce the unintended spread of infection.”
Since then, the eatery has focused on feeding the people on the front lines of the pandemic, including service workers such as police officers, EMTs, utility workers and employees of the Transportation Security Administration.
