Announcing a New DC Vendor: Lula Mae’s Gardin Food Truck and Catering

Breadcoin Foundation, Ltd. welcomes a new caterer and food truck, Lula Mae’s Gardin, to our growing list of vendors that people can visit or that our distribution partners can cater from. 

Lula Mae’s Gardin has a food truck that is in Lanham, Maryland at 9800 Good Luck Road, Wednesday through Friday noon to 8 and in Brookland, DC at the intersection of 14th Street and Rhode Island Avenue, NE on Saturdays from noon to 8.

Billed as “grandma’s home cooking to fuel your soul,” we can attest to the joy of the pineapple upside down cake, and those crabcakes sure do look good!

Breadcoin Foundation, Ltd. announced a new participating vendor in Washington, DC, accepting Breadcoin tokens as payment for food at their establishment.

Breadcoin is excited to welcome Ledo Pizza (7435 Georgia Avenue, NW) as our newest vendor in the Brightwood neighborhood.

Currently operating for catering or phone-in orders, Ledo is a popular DC-area restaurant, originally begun in College Park, Maryland.

Their trademark square pizzas are stellar for families, events, feeding a crowd.

We’re grateful to have this Ledo location as part of our network of food establishments feeding the community with dignity and without stigma. Our food vendors are at the heart of our efforts, and we couldn’t do what we do without them.

Get yourself some Ledo food, and tell them Breadcoin sent you!

Pastor William Spence, board member, Breadcoin leader and neighborhood captain too (and those are only his Breadcoin jobs; did we mention he ably leads Harvest Life Fellowship?)… well he’s been busy signing up new Breadcoin vendors.

The corner of Benning Roads and 19th Street, NE now has not one but three Breadcoin vendors — Royal Rooster, Wings ‘N More Wings, and Langston Bar and Grille. Each accepts Breadcoins for payment, giving area folks a variety of options for using their Breadcoins. We are partial, respectively, to the cheese steak sandwich, the wings and the sliders, all priced for just a few Breadcoins.

Breadcoin food tokens are given to hungry folks to use at such vendors by our nonprofit partners. A particularly active partner in the Langston neighborhood is the Washington DC Police Foundation and we see 5th District Metropolitan Police Department outreach officers using coins at these vendors to help feed folks with whom they are doing anti-crime initiatives, youth mentoring, or just checking in on families isolated at home.

Stop on over to any of these places and meet the friendly staffs and eat something good. Tell them Breadcoin sent you!

Mother’s Day Surprise

Mother’s Day Surprise

The outreach team from the 5th District of DC’s Metropolitan Police Department paid surprise visits to seniors and others in their area, dispensing roses, candles, and cookies and muffins from Breadcoin vendor Mission Muffins.

This Mother’s Day surprise was an encouragement to the women, especially during a pandemic!

A partnership between the Washington, DC Police Foundation and Breadcoin has provided the officers with a new tool to use in building positive community relationships, feeding people and showing up to let people know they care.

During this challenging time for small businesses, Breadcoin vendors, including Mission Muffins (which is doing its business by online orders with delivery or pickup) have stayed open. A win/win for partners like the DC Police Foundation and for vendors too!
