Today we dealt with an urgent situation, we were contacted by a member of the community who missed our meal share event yesterday & has three hungry children & no running water in their apartment. This was a first for us, we reached out to @portiascafe & she was more than willing to help us feed this family in need! She provided us this nutritious vegan food (at no cost) that we then delivered to this appreciative family. Portia is such a valuable asset, not only to the vegan community, but the Columbus community as a whole, thank you so much!! 💛💛💛.

Today was our second @chilisonwheelscolumbus event! 💞 We froze our vegan buns off handing out free plantbased meals... but it was sooo worth bundling up for! 😊 *All pics reposted from @chilisonwheelscolumbus

I'm thankful for @tabgreenvegan and Noah (our two amazing organizers), and everyone who was there volunteering! 🍃💞@kootso @jillbean1686 @jduffoto •

At the end of our event we had a few meals leftover, some more of our young volunteers helped us take them next door to the Men’s Shelter. It’s wonderful to see them so eager to help those in need! @chilisonwheels 💛.

Like human-Mom like dog. 🖤 Lola at Chilis on Wheels with Howie.
Julia Rooster and their human Michelle Carrera posed like pros for me today in #sanjuanpuertorico - and Michelle managed to prep food for today’s meal share at #chilisonwheels between snaps. I’m so grateful to have been able to spend time with your feathered, furry and smooth family members this week.
Thank you to everyone who made yesterday’s Community Pop-up Market possible:) I’m grateful for the dedicated group volunteers who showed up, on behalf of both @fuelthepeople and @chilisonwheels
Also huge thanks to @momsorganicmarket for the food donations!! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hey Folx! @fuelthepeople is so excited to announce our second annual Pop-Up Market. This pop-up began as a vegan food and product distribution that has now evolved into a refreshing community space for folx to stock up on essentials, food items and clothing  while enjoying the company of others over music and a warm meal served by volunteers of the DC Chapter of @chilisonwheels . •
When: Feb. 10th| 2:00-4:00pm
Where: 276 Carroll St. NW, Washington, DC 20012

Since Fuel the People is a vegan org that centers Black and Brown experiences, we extend this resource to those who may not immediately identify with homelessness. This space addresses the consistent state of food/housing insecurity that many of us experience as Black and Brown people navigating poverty. •

I think a common misconception is that @chilisonwheels only serves vegan food to people that are going through homelessness. But that’s not entirely true. We serve the community, people that are food insecure, anyone that needs to save those $10 they would have spent on food to pay for other bills, we serve seniors, we serve kids, we serve passerby’s that have never had a vegan donut before and want to try it, we serve those affected by natural disasters, we serve each other who are trying to make a difference in our community but who are also struggling ourselves. And we always provide leaflets and information on healthy foods and veganism and if asked we will help people transition to veganism from where they are at. And in some chapters we go to schools and churches and group homes and do food demos and talks on healthy eating. It’s easy to put things in boxes and simplify things. We’re gathering around food and building community.

Today was a very special meal share. It’s Thursday brunch in Vega Baja, and one of our original volunteers, whom I hadn’t seen in a while, Manuel joined us. Evelyn, a very lovely person came and stayed with us for the entirety of the share. She has been sober for three weeks, and she has precarious circumstances in her home. She asked me why, if she was trying to do the right thing, was she attracting so many obstacles. And all I could say was “We have the old version of ourselves, and we have the new version of ourselves (even if we can’t see it quite clearly). And we’re blending into one and leaving the other behind, and it’s not an easy process- and we’re vulnerable because we aren’t one or the other. But we have to trust that the version of who we want to be will be worth it. And we have to keep choosing it, even when it gets hard. We have to keep choosing it.” .
.
And she started crying, and I started crying. I was talking to myself. I was her, she was me, I was me. .
.
.
And that’s why what we do is so precious. Because while the vegan food is what brings us together, this life, in its messiness, the tears, the mirroring, the support, this is what we’re really doing. This is its real purpose. And this can’t be quantified in a grant proposal. And it doesn’t sell well for folks that want to be all about veganism or all about food justice. But this is what allows us to grow alongside each other- this is what community is.

It’s time I choose my newest path. It’s time I stop trying to live in multiple spaces at once, like a hologram. Even if it’s uncomfortable, even if there’s grieving for what I have to leave behind. Even if I don’t quite know what’s beyond. .
.

I didn’t know when I came to PR to do food relief after the hurricane, I didn’t know when I set off on TheVTeamTour, I didn’t know when I did the first meal share with Ollie 5 years ago. But I have to keep trusting that whatever I do, is what I need to be doing. .
.

Caminante no hay camino, se hace camino al andar. / Walker there is no path, the path is made by walking.

“It’s love for the community, love for the animals, and love for trying to make this world better”. - @chilisonwheels
.
Chilis on Wheels was started by Michelle Carrera in Nov 2014. When she couldn’t find a soup kitchen that served a Vegan Thanksgiving meal, she decided to prepare her own vegan chili and take it directly to the community. After seeing first hand the need for such a program, she became inspired and committed to bringing Vegan 🌱 food to those in need.
.
Chilis on Wheels started in Brooklyn NY, and now there are 12 chapters all around the USA for anyone wishing to get more involved. (The Chapters are on IG as well)
.
Chilis on Wheels Baltimore
Chilis on Wheels - Bay Area Chapter
Chilis on Wheels - Boston
Chilis on Wheels Detroit
Chilis on Wheels: Honolulu
Chilis on Wheels Maui
Chilis on Wheels- New Brunswick
Chilis on Wheels NYC
Chilis on Wheels- Puerto Rico
Chilis on Wheels- San Diego Chapter
Chilis on Wheels South L.A.
Chilis on Wheels Washington D.C.
.
💚 Chilis on Wheels believes that an empowered community is key in dismantling systematic inequalities that prevent veganism from being attainable by poor and low-income communities. Through our networks of support, we're collectively building alternate systems to make veganism accessible to the areas that we serve.

I just don’t know how to do anything else. #mealshares #freestore #community
Super excited to announce my friend Noah & I are co-organizing the Columbus Chapter of #chilisonwheels!

I have always wanted to volunteer at a soup kitchen to serve meals to those in need, but couldn’t because the meals they serve are not in line with my beliefs. I recently stumbled across Chilis On Wheels on Social Media & decided I wanted to make this happen in our community. The goal of COW is making veganism accessible to communities in need. Through regularly scheduled meal shares, we provide vegan food to anyone in need of a warm meal. Our first event is 1/19 & we have partnered with Blackburn Community Recreation Center! Check out our new page, @chilisonwheelscolumbus & let me know if you are interested in volunteering or want additional info!

So excited for the opportunity to help those in need in our community, while advocating for veganism! 🌱🐄🐷🐑🐣🐐🐔🐳🐒🐯🐠🐘🐛🐝🐞🐢🌎✌🏼 #chilisonwheelscolumbus
Guys this is super exciting! Thanks to @tabgreenvegan, @chilisonwheels has come to Columbus! Have you always wanted to help feed those in need, but were conflicted because you didn’t want to harm animals, the planet, and ultimately the health of all of those people by serving them animal products? Well #ChilisOnWheels serves #vegan food so it’s definitely something we can get behind 100%! Give @chilisonwheelscolumbus a follow! The first event is on January 19th! 💚

Starting a CoW chapter has been an adventure and the best part hasn’t even started yet! Mark you calendars for our first event on Sunday, February 17, 2019 in downtown LA (details to come) This year has been a year of beginnings, lessons, and growth. 2019 will be the year of seeing it all come together. When I reached out to @chilisonwheels about staring a chapter here in LA, I had no clue what I was doing. I just believed in the work and the power of community and compassion. I know that as we roll out our events in the coming year we’re going to learn a lot, we may not always get it right, but that isn’t the point. The point is that we bring our hearts and our passion to the streets of Los Angeles and that we show respect and dignity to every living being we encounter. Thanks to all of our chapter members, and I can’t wait to do beautiful work with you in 2019! Happy New Year! -A #chilisonwheels #losangeles #veganism #community
“We have all known the long loneliness and we have learned that the only solution is love and that love comes with community.” Dorothy Day ~Last meal share of the year in NYC! Our hearts grow and grow and grow. Marcella said today, she’s known Ollie since he’s a tiny kid- and she’s right! Ollie was four when we started coming around Tompkins every Saturday. She’s known us since. We’ve met her grandkids when they’re in town- she’s sure to bring them over to meet us. She’s trying to go vegan now so we’ve helped her out and guided her. She’s shared her intel on free reiki programs. I’m leaving NYC in a few days and it’s not without sadness. Movement is important but so are roots. And roots are grown slowly, with time, by showing up. Community is always fluid, as are we, but it is also rooted and comes with the promise of stability. Community is an oak tree. And I have a forest. #grateful
I hit all my goals for 2018 and it’s important that we take stock of the year and prepare for the next one! 2018 was rough sometimes but it was definitely a big one! Here’s what I did!
Moved back to Puerto Rico to start @casaveganadelacomunidad - rented house, serve vegan meals multiple locations several times a week, hold weekly events and workshops led by local vegan leaders, hired two people there; led talks in several events and cities in the US, and in Ireland with Vegans of Colour; published writings including in Food Justice: A Primer; was interviewed for multiple media; kept unschooling Ollie, facilitating his education and development; allowed the space for animals in need of rescue and foster to find me; found Lola our canine team member, and our beloved chickens; launched an online #vegan Mentorship program that takes socio economic background into consideration when matching mentors and mentees; was asked to join the board of @microsanctuaryresourcecenter - an organization I absolutely adored and repped for already; went raw and kept at it for three months; organized a Community Thanksgiving Feast that served thousands of free meals in multiple locations and distributed coats and all sorts of wanted items; re-charged in my beloved New Mexico; spent Xmas with my family that I hadn’t seen in three years; even went caroling; and this is only the unpaid work! It was a year of community, connection, and building. Thank you to everyone that was a part of it! What a journey! 2019 is coming and again, I have big goals! It’s all happening. And we’re doing it together! For the animals, for each other, for justice...❤️🔥✨ Do you recap your year? Do you set goals for the new year? What’s your end of year tradition?
My work, like life, is a constant tug of war. It is as much feeling as it is strategy; heart as it is mind. We can’t have one without the other.
It is sharing a hug, a meal, a coat with someone who needs it. And writing a grant proposal. It is seeing the individual: Howie, Irene, Omar ; and speaking of number of meals served.
And our own lives are like that. Being the actor and the audience- the one who experiences life and the one who processes from a higher plane.
Humans are poetry. We are words and also stanzas. And we are complicated, and messy, and beautiful.
And so is this work of justice- never static, always fluid- always seeking balance... ❤️

This is James. I met him volunteering with @chilisonwheelshonolulu. He used to work in landscaping, but fell on hard times after a rough divorce. Now he lives on the streets. He wasn’t even sure where he would be sleeping that cold and rainy night. When I told him what @chilisonwheels mission was, he said, “That’s what community is. We help each other when we’re wounded.” He asked if he could volunteer with us at our next event, and my heart nearly exploded with joy.

Do we have a moral imperative to help one another? Where do we draw the lines? Why do we draw them?

Some people say being around mountains makes them feel small, aware of the fleetingness of the human condition. Not me. They make me go inward and feel the vastness of my experience, of my heart. Like wow-I’m as big as a mountain. I can slow down and breathe and be still like a mountain. I can be strong and stoic and timeless. But I’m not immutable- the wind and the water can eventually shape me-

Time is something I’ve been thinking a lot about these last few days- experimenting with slowing it down and stretching it until it becomes one of Ollie’s gum masterpieces- What is it to be timeless- what is it to live in these towns and wake up to the same life day in and day out for generations- what is it to know the land like the palm of a hand, what is it to know a partner like a childhood home, what is it to become a breath with no exhale.
What makes life count? -if we’re counting and making lists- and I love me a good list- then driving through inescapable timeless New Mexico roads is up there; a good cup of coffee; an unexpected genuine compliment from Ollie; an unprompted cuddle from Lola; affirmations from friends; a spectacular sunset; the last sob after a gratitude cry; the exhilaration after a migraine; that moment when after months of serving a community it takes you in-and trusts you; time is what makes all this possible. I’ve been trying to live too much, too fast, too everywhere and this feeling of disconnection, of burnout comes from impatience/ from living in the surface. There is no breath without an exhale- and for water to bend the earth, it takes decades. #newmexico #rambles #selfcare
Im grateful to be surrounded by like minded people. Through @chilisonwheelsbayarea we are using food to connect with people in need, build relationships and delivery compassion. I’m sharing some happy pictures but the communities we are serving are in crisis. #chilisonwheels #oakland
