The By Any Meals: A 5 Borough Food Drive is back and needs your help! Created by, By Any Means’ Aristotle and the hood’s favorite chef, Hood Chef this food drive is a unique alternative to your traditional thanksgiving food drive. Visitors to the By Any Meals truck are treated to freshly prepared five-course meal instead of the stranded can food and cold turkey sandwiches.
Aristotle tells JAY’s Life + Times where the By Any Meal idea originated:
It actually started with something Hood Chef was doing. He was telling me about an event he had done where he fed about 200 hungry New Yorkers. There’s just something genuine about Hood Chef. Whenever he has a platform and has the resources his first instinct is to give back to people. That was really just a big inspiration to me and it changed my thought process on what kind of executive and entrepreneur I wanted to be. The first thing I wanted to know was how I could get involved and how could we make it bigger and better. Initially our goal was to feed 500 people and we were fortunate enough to feed over 800. I wanted to extend that to my circle and my peers and obviously associate my brand with giving back as well. That was the inception.
