Lasagna Love is a non-profit enterprise that connects community members through gestures of kindness, goodwill, and support.
In 2020, prompted by the Covid-related struggles of families in her community and her own feeling of helplessness, Rhiannon Menn launched the platform to deliver home-cooked meals to neighbors in need.
"There were so many moms that I knew who had lost childcare, who had lost jobs. They were just feeling stressed out," she says. "And so literally one day, I was just like, I'm gonna make extra meals."
Before long, her effort to comfort members of her community in San Diego had grown into something much larger. In just two years, Lasagna Love has successfully united participation of more than 30,000 men and women from around the world. More than 200,000 meals have been delivered through the platform, feeding over 850,000 people.
As more meals are delivered, the ripple effect has become more profound, and results from a recent survey conducted by Lasagna Love proves the network effect of kindness.
