EATERY GIVES BACK THROUGH LARK X FAT KID INSIDE CAMPAIGN

As one of the chosen winners, Heaven's Touch Cuisine was granted cash support to keep their business operational. In turn, a portion of the donation was used by Heaven's Touch to prepare and deliver food packs to various City Hub sites.
Before becoming a winner of the Lark x The Fat Kid Inside campaign, the Piadoche family had already completed a successful food drive, funded by donations they solicited themselves. Three thousand meals were shared with hospital workers, officers at checkpoints, homeless individuals, and those residing in shelters, during this drive.
The funds they received from Lark and Erwan Heussaff enabled Heaven's Touch Catering to deliver around 2,500 more food packs, this time for blue collar workers at City Hub to enjoy.
