More Info

Chef David Guas of Bayou Bakery, Coffee Bar & Eatery [Arlington, VA] is known for his community efforts. At the onset of the pandemic - Guas went rogue the day following the public school shutdown, launching the FIRST rapid relief response to feed local students and families nutritious, plant-based meals in Arlington County at a time when no meals were available to people reliant on the public school lunch program. As the co-founder of Chefs Feeding Families, formed with Real Food for Kids, the organization provided over 180,000 meals.

Now! Guas - a food insecurity activist - is once again applying the same community-driven spirit to get involved, immediately and independently. Guas is launching the "Community Spoon” campaign, providing meals to Afghan refugees who are arriving in Northern Virginia. Beginning the week of August 30, 2021, Guas and his dedicated team will be providing prepared vegetarian meals and groceries to be delivered to the Lutheran Social Services of the National Capital Area, which  will be dispersed to the refugee families in need. Coming with nothing but themselves, a freshly home-cooked meal is the most welcoming gesture to offer those who have suffered such a traumatic loss so that they may know that they are safe in their new found home, here, in the United States.
