Kevin Smith Serves Up Vegan Lasagna Sandwiches In COVID-19 Relief Effort
Plant-based filmmaker Kevin Smith has partnered with Postmates to dish up vegan meals in Los Angeles in support of a COVID-19 hunger-relief effort.
The meals will be served under the brandname Mooby’s, based on an imagined fast-food joint which appears in a number of Smith’s films.
Each meal includes a Messy Lasagna Sandwich (available vegan), with a side of both Chocolate Covered Pretzels and Hater Totz — the brand’s spin on classic Tater Tots. They will also include an autographed card from Smith’s latest film, Jay and Silent Bob Reboot.
Proceeds will benefit No Us Without You, a charity launched to feed hungry families during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
The meals will be available from April 19 to April 25. According to Smith, there are tentative, pandemic dependent plans in the works to open a dine-in Mooby’s later this year.

Vegan Food & COVID-19
Charitable vegan options have been popping up throughout the US, allowing citizens to dine plant-based in a time of need.
Late last month, fish-free seafood-alternative brand Sophie’s Kitchen gave away 3,000 cases of a brand new product to Bay Area food banks, while Mercy for Animals partnered with local charities to giveaway 2,000 meals in some of New York’s most vulnerable neighbourhoods.
