A random act of kindness is defined as a selfless act performed by a person or people wishing to either help or cheer up another person or group. With that thought in mind, we have created our own version of that mission called Ruthie's Snacks of Kindness (RSK). The goal is simple: Ruthie's wants to put a smile on people's faces and joy in their hearts by combining delectable comfort food with a community purpose.

Ruthie’s selects a different non-profit each month to highlight on our food trucks, social media and website to bring awareness to the community about the organization and their current needs to continue helping others.

As a way to help the non-profits directly, Ruthie’s collects financial donations as well as tangible needs for the organizations receiving an RSK while serving at certain regular rolling event.

Standing on a sunny sidewalk on Record Street in downtown Dallas, I could see how valuable Ruthie’s Rolling Café is to our community. Ruthie’s was on site to provide lunch to the staff of the Dallas Holocaust Museum, some of their volunteers, docents, and a Holocaust, survivor speaker. The meals, prepared on site at the Museum, were part of the rolling café’s ‘Random Snack of Kindness’ initiative. Watching the smiles and camaraderie shared over lunch, it was clear that there was nothing random about the fellowship being cooked up on the sidewalk. By serving those who serve others, Ruthie’s delivers something even more delicious than its gourmet, grilled cheese sandwiches: A sense of community and a renewed spirit are among the best our community has to offer.

Dreary weather did not stop the amazing Ruthie’s team! They showed up at our office ready to serve the staff and residents an incredible Ruthie’s Snack of Kindness. The food was delicious and the tomato basil soup shooters hit the spot on a cold dreary day. What an incredible treat!

For the past 5 years, Equest has run an equine therapy program dedicated to helping veterans and military families with their civilian transition. Two of the biggest challenges we always face are letting the community know the good work being done at Equest and securing the financial resources needed to run our program. Ruthie’s has been an amazing partner of ours helping us overcome both of these by raising our profile in the community and sharing their Ruthie’s Snacks of Kindness with us. They have a heart for philanthropy and also happen to make a mighty fine grilled cheese sandwich! All of us at Equest are huge fans of Ruthie’s!

There are days I find myself sitting at my desk, craving the life changing grilled cheese I got from Ruthie’s Rolling Café when they came by to honor REACT as a non-profit partner through their Snack of Kindness initiative. As I daze off thinking about their grilled-cheese, I’m not just wanting any grilled cheese, I’m day dreaming of “The Boss”; a mouth-watering BBQ brisket grilled cheese with bacon! Ruthie’s staff is so friendly and helpful, they had us feelin’ like VIP’s! It was so nice to be able to take a break and enjoy some fantastic comfort food with our team and clients, all thanks to Ruthie’s! We would definitely recommend gifting Ruthie’s Snack of Kindness to anyone & everyone!
