Plate IQ brought the concept of Gift a Plate to Ivan Ramen's attention recently and we immediately loved the idea for the reason that it offers wholistic relief from the issues ourselves and other restaurants are facing during this pandemic. Supporting the restaurants by buying food for those in need allows Gift a Plate to support the entire restaurant ecosystem. Vendors supply the food, our staff lovingly and safely prepares it, delivery people take the food, and the restaurant makes a sale. At the same time, it allows the donation to feed those among us that are the most severely affected by this crisis as well as those who most vulnerable. This thoughtful approach taken by Plate IQ affords everyone in the supply chain to benefit from others generosity while doing something for the community at large at the same time.
This pandemic has upended all of our lives. In a city that is known for abundance, food insecurity is at a level never seen before. I cherish the opportunity to provide, in any way, food to people that are in need. Thank you for allowing us to participate, we are honored. Ivan Orkin, Owner Ivan Ramen
