The L.A. Bodega on Wheels is a temporary mobile bodega providing isolation salvation for Angelenos, powered by a collection of local restaurants and small businesses: Coolhaus, The Rose Venice, Future Gin, and VERVET. Featuring an assortment of prepared food, produce, pantry staples, booze, and sweets from each of the partners, it's their way of adapting to the realities of our new homebound normal in order to bring resources—and hopefully, a little fun—to the Los Angeles community. Plus, it helps put some of their unemployed staffers back to work with tips in their pockets. 10% of proceeds from all sales will be evenly divided and donated to charities including Opportunity Fund's Small Business Relief Fund.
“The Bodega on Wheels is such an amazing partnership between business owners across hospitality segments (restaurant/bar/ice cream shop/spirit brand) who are rising to the challenge in these immensely challenging times to bring delicious, nourishing products to the community while raising money to give back to those in need. I love that we are using our Coolhaus trucks for the awesome retailer on wheels partnership. We hope that we can bring a smile to Angelenos who need a reason to right now!” said Natasha Case, CEO and founder of Coolhaus.
