San Diego (KGTV) One plate at a time, a San Diego couple is hoping to help those living on the streets with no food to eat. They’re using their new food trailer to do just that. 

‘#FeedingEveryone’ is the goal for the Duwara Consciousness Foundation. 

“Our foundation is about serving anyone and everyone,” says co-founder Harisimran Khalsa. 

Through donations from the community, couple Davinder and Harisimran were able to purchase a food trailer to help feed the homeless. 

The couple says they’re committed to helping others. They left their jobs, sold businesses, and are now living a simpler lifestyle. 

“When your passionate about something, you have to live the life of and see how it is,” says Davinder Singh. “We decided that we would give up the house that we were living in.”

The 16-foot trailer is equipped with a griller, 2 part stove, refrigeration and prep space. Every food item made is plant-based. 

Donations and volunteers strictly power the organization. They are serving at least two locations every week. They hope to grow the non-profit and eventually purchase a shower bus for the homeless. 

 The organization has partnered with the Jewish Family Service to feed the homeless on Thursdays and Fill-A-Belly to serve those in need on Tuesdays. They are also working on a partnership with the Alpha Project in Downtown. 

Serving locations and times, as well as a donation page, is listed on the Duwara Consciousness Foundation website.
