"Ruthie's so generously donated 10% of their net profits for the whole month back to My Possibilities. We were so amazed to receive a check for $2,000!! What a difference $2,000 makes to a small organization like ours. State funding for families caring for adults with cognitive disabilities is limited in Texas. In fact, Texas is ranked 50th in the United States. As a result, we provide educational programming for less than $25 per client per day – less than the cost of a movie, popcorn and a drink!"
-Elizabeth Romo, My Possibilities
Akola Project had the opportunity to partner with Ruthie's Rolling Cafe in December as a recipient of the Ruthie's Dozen program, and it was such a blessing to all of us here at Akola! We were so honored and excited to have our friends at Ruthie's share our mission across Dallas during the month of December, and our customers were thrilled to find a Ruthie's food truck parked outside the store one Saturday afternoon as part of the partnership. Being a part of Ruthie's Dozen was definitely a delicious way to further our mission of empowering women in poverty.
"I just wanted to thank you very much for the rehearsal luncheon at Scott & Megan's rehearsal New Year's Eve. Everything was WONDERFUL and DELICIOUS. The girl and guys that came out were just as wonderful. Thank you for helping make it an even more special day for us."
"I just wanted to thank Ruthie's! Everything was wonderful yesterday, and your staff was so helpful, polite & prompt. Thank you again & everyone loved the sandwiches!!"
-Amanda Hamilton, Dallas Garden Club
"My Possibilities is still a young organization providing a new service to a historically forgotten, but special group of people; adults with cognitive disabilities. The daily social media support Ruthie's provided as a part of their Ruthie's Dozen effort is immeasurable. Their team shared our client stories, daily happenings in the program, photos and even news of our upcoming fundraiser, Santa Run Texas. We are so grateful for their support in getting our message and our mission out to the North Texas community."
-Elizabeth Romo, My Possibilities
"We have had Ruthie's trucks at several of our parties and each time, the food was served hot and unbelievably fast! The cooks and servers are always so friendly and, the grilled cheeses are nothing less than FANTASTIC! The new mac-n-cheese bowls were a huge hit at our last event. We can't wait for our next cheese fix with Ruthie's!"
"We had one of the Ruthie's food trucks at our house tonight for a Sunday School class party. Bobby was one of the workers on the truck and was so polite and helpful to all the "seniors" at our party. He was friendly, had a great smile for everyone, and we all appreciated his attitude. Besides that, the grilled cheese sandwiches were cooked to perfection and were more than delicious! Thank you to the owners of Ruthie's Rolling Cafe food trucks! Congratulations for having the best sandwiches ever AND the best employees ever!"
- Janie and Jerry Gilmore
"Ruthie’s Food Trucks – thank you so much!! We at C. C. Young are so grateful and humbled by your generosity. With your help, C. C. Young residents in need received food, shelter, medicine and skilled nursing care. These are residents that have outlived all of their assets and income. In addition, their families are not in a financial position to help them. These are residents that have worked hard all of their lives but find they are truly in need of help during this stage of their life. Thank you again as you have enriched their lives and ours."
-Sharon Ballew, C. C. Young, Director of Fundraising
"It was wonderful. The food was delicious, the people were great, and the truck was a true attraction!"
"Ruthie's Food trucks will put several hundred troops in seats in DFW!! They just donated enough money to buy three kayaks for the Heroes on the Water DFW Chapter. Several Hundred warriors will go fishing in those kayaks. Thanks to Ruthie's and DFW Cheese lovers!!!"
-Jim Dolan, Heroes on the Water
"Ruthie's helped make this years Belles Night Out the best yet! Everyone raved over the sandwiches and the service! Thank you Ruthie's Rolling Cafe!!!"
-Jill Giddens, Highland Park Belles Parent
"Mercy Street wishes to thank Ruthie's for their heartfelt love and support throughout the month of June. Ruthie's has a heart for service and we're the grateful recipients! Having them as our advocate has helped spread the message of Mercy Street throughout the metroplex. What a privilege to be a Ruthie's Dozen! We love you, Ruthie's…for more than just DELICIOUS grilled cheese!"
- Emily Walker, Mercy Street
"One of the biggest challenges our veteran's program faces is letting the world know about the good things happening at Equest Hooves for Heroes. We see lives change every day but we can't hope to continue this work without support. This is one reason being a Ruthie's Dozen recipient was so important to us. Everyone knows Ruthie's and their ongoing commitment to community service. Having this amazing organization spend one month championing our program was absolutely invaluable. We received a steady stream of inquiries from potential supporters, volunteers, and participants all attributable to Ruthie's Food Trucks. This type of exposure combined with Ruthie's financial contribution made April a game-changing month for Equest Hooves for Heroes!"
- Jeff Hensley, Equest Volunteer Coordinator and Navy Veteran
"HPUMC held a 7th grade social for over 120 students and Ruthie's Rolling Cafe was just what the Dr. ordered to feed the hungry teenagers. The grilled cheese sandwiches were amazing and the staff was great to work with! We will be calling on Ruthie's again and again this summer as they truly are one stop shopping for easy and awesome food!"
- Melanie Bell
"Ruthie's Food Trucks helped make St. Rita's Catholic School 50th Anniversary events the most delicious celebration in history! Everyone lined up for the freshest, cheesiest and most scrumptious sandwiches in town to devour at our Jack Ingram concert at the Paladium and again at our Fun Run and Carnival! Those that didn't already stalk Ruthie's food trucks before our events are no forever fans! Thank you Ruthie's! St. Rita loves you!"
- Tricia Johnson, St. Rita 50th Anniversary Chair
"A huge thank you to everyone at Ruthie's Food Trucks for supporting Reading Partners during the month of February 2014. It was such a pleasure getting to know you and your friendly staff, and our staff still can't get enough of your tomato basil soup shooters! We appreciate everything you've done to help us spread the word about the need for volunteers in our public school system. Thank you for all that you're doing to help hundreds of low-income Dallas children master the reading skills they need to succeed!"
- Kelly Bush, Reading Partners
"I just have to shout three extra loud cheers for Ruthie's Food Trucks and let you know how much all of us at Community Partners of Dallas have LOVED partnering as this month’s Ruthie’s Dozen charity partner! Not only is this the best excuse ever to eat a ton of delicious grilled cheese goodness (it’s helping the children after all!), y’all have made every single moment fun! We’re so grateful for the exposure through your social media efforts and on the truck, and for the generous financial support! Thank you, thank you, thank you for all you do to make our community stronger and for blessing Dallas County’s abused and neglected children! CPD LOVES Ruthie's!"
- Joanna Clark, Community Partners of Dallas

We are SO GRATEFUL for your support, service and generosity!
- Cecilie Holman
"I just wanted to thank you for letting your truck still serve our child's birthday party this weekend (due to weather). We had a big turnout, which was a direct result of every other event in Dallas getting canceled and the intense cabin fever every kid was experiencing. We had to make a lot of adjustments to our plans due to the weather. The food truck was a huge hit, the sandwiches were fantastic, and your team did a great job. Thank you."
- Patrick Brandt
"I was so very pleased with last night's block party, and especially the food and service from Ruthie's Rolling Cafe. Thank you! The food was exceptional and the service most accommodating to all requests, including making up one last sandwich as the staff had begun shutting down to serve our beloved police sergeant who was checking on us in the final minutes of patrol for our party. Your staff was great!"
"We at the SPCA of Texas were so thrilled to be chosen as one of "Ruthie's Dozen!" Not only was there a wonderful donation, but Ruthie's publicized our cause on their website, and even came out and brought lunch to our SPCA of Texas employees! Now, due to popular demand, our employees have Ruthie's coming out every month to see us...because we LOVE Ruthie's Rolling Café, and what they have done to support our employees and our cause."
- Jan Scoggins, SPCA of Texas
"An adorable pig, yummy grilled cheese sandwiches, and health care?... not your typical fundraising campaign to say the least! But thanks to Ruthie's Food Trucks' amazing vision and creativity, the whole experience was a sizzling success. What an honor for Methodist Health System to be chosen as one of the inaugural “Ruthie’s Dozen!” In addition to the generous donation we received at the end of the month, Methodist gained invaluable exposure to a whole new audience. Ruthie’s gave us the unique opportunity to provide facts about Methodist Dallas Medical Center and our life-saving emergency and trauma campaign to their 8000+ Facebook and Twitter fans for the entire month of July. In turn, we promoted the campaign on our own Facebook and Twitter pages, as well as through our employee newsletter and flyers. It became a great source of pride and excitement for our staff. In fact, the day Ruthie’s rolled up to Methodist, we had a line around the building just waiting to participate. And to top it off, the story was featured prominently with a photo in our local newspaper. Thanks, Ruthie’s for finding fun and delicious ways to do great things for our community. Believe it or not – a grilled cheese sandwich can save a life! "
- Kathleen Beathard, Methodist Health System
"Heroes on the Water had Ruthie's Food truck - Grilled Cheese and more Style - come out and feed the Carry the Load gang via Random Snacks of Kindness. An awesome event! I think a lot of folks had a chance to relax and chow down! These folks usually sit in a meeting and make plans/solve problems. They rarely get a chance to socialize. Your truck and the relaxed atmosphere it brings made that happen. Lot's of pretty cool grippin' and grinnin' in the crowd. If you need a fun and different way to thank and feed your friends, families, coworkers, employees, or even a bunch of Marines, SEALS, Rangers and overall military studs - Ruthie's can make that happen for you. I rate Ruthie's 5 out of 5 wings. (Since I'm a pilot!!)"
- Jim Dolan, Heroes on the Water
"In the month of March 2013, Honor Courage Commitment, Inc. was honored as one of Ruthie's prestigious Dozen! Ruthie's is an iconic symbol of the great community of Dallas and for HCC to have this type of support proves the patriotism and commitment in our local communities. Every day of the month was about creating awareness of the positive impact the veteran community has on America. HCC takes pride in working on local community projects and will continue to partner with our lifelong friends at Ruthie's! Their delicious grilled cheese and sandwiches are a bonus to their commitment to our local charities. The Veterans of HCC love Ruthie's Food Trucks!"
