Soulgood Cares Program

Soulgood Cares Program is a nonprofit initiative that allows us to focus on social impact and giving back to communities and families in need through community outreach and social impact projects.


Our mission is to save the planet, people and animals one plate at a time. Our founder believes charity starts at home and having a giving spirit, loving heart, open mind and caring about the community where you live and work creates a stronger foundation for a better world. 


Soulgood Cares Foundation's programs are social impact initiatives designed to have a positive impact in the communities we serve. Throughout the year, we host events to feed homeless children, serve healthy plant-based foods at no cost in food deserts in underserved communities, participate in community health fairs and donate 5% of our revenue to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and other local charities. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has created economic hardships for so many and we understand times are exceptionally difficult for some families. You can get involved by volunteering or sponsoring our Soulgood Cares program. We accept donations to help in the following ways:

  • Provide plant-based food to families in need in food deserts and underserved low-income communities.

  • Provide jobs and career opportunities to women and men who need a second chance.

  • Provide plant-based meals to first responders, healthcare workers and essential workers.

  • Provide support to restaurant workers, restaurant owners and food service professionals. 

  • Provide free plant-based health education services in partnership with local nonprofit organizations, school districts and corporations.

Why We Give

Tyler D. Nelson was born with a genetic disease called Cystic Fibrosis. In 2015, he transitioned due to complications from the disease. However, before the age of 17, Tyler was a published author, a speaker, an award-winning advocate for organ donation, and a friend to many around the world. Soulgood was created to honor the legacy of Tyler D. Nelson, son of Chef Cynthia and Jaroby Nelson. 


Through our Soulgood Cares social impact and charitable giving program we raise hundreds of dollars to serve healthy foods to homeless children, deliver plant-based food options to families in low-income and underserved communities, and hire parents of special needs or chronically-ill children to work on our food truck to earn extra income. We provide free plant-based health education programs online to provide recipes, tips and resources to live a healthier life. We also go a step further with each dollar earned, we donate 5% to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and other local tax-exempt charities that align with Soulgood's mission.
