Eat Out. Cart For a Cause.

You can't travel down a street in L.A. these days without hitting a food truck, and while we'll be doing our best to give you the dish on what's worth chasing (briefly: Grilled Cheese, yes; Nom Nom, no; Dim Sum, you're next!), here's a new one that should definitely go on your radar, for its simple purpose alone.

Cart For a Cause calls itself 'the nation's first philanthropic meal truck that helps feed homebound seniors and those who are unable to prepare their own meals.' Indeed, all of the net proceeds from the truck will benefit the St. Vincent Meals on Wheels program in a one-for-one concept--each meal bought provides a meal for a homebound person. But its philanthropy isn't the only thing setting Cart For a Cause apart.

The truck will be headed each month by a different top L.A. chef, the first of which is Chef Alex from Nobu in West Hollywood, to be followed next month by the well-revered Chef Susan Feniger of Street. That means that your $10 ('healthy beverage' included) is not only helping out a good cause, but getting you a world-class meal too.

Good eating, indeed.

Cart For a Cause will be rolling out Tuesdays, with its official launch happening today at 9650 Wilshire Blvd. in Beverly Hills (United Talent Agency building) from 12:30pm-2:30pm.
