An Aruna Run is a 5k run/walk created by the Aruna Project. By participating in an Aruna Run, you can raise funds and secure freedom for a specific woman trapped in modern day slavery.
In 2009, our founders established Doma as a community-based support program for adult survivors of human trafficking. Two years later they expanded the program to fill the void between restoration and economic independence, and purchased a food cart as a work force training tool for survivors. While Doma offered supportive services toward restoration, Freedom a la Cart gave survivors a job and means to live. Freedom became the vehicle – literally – through which survivors began the ever important first steps to self-sufficiency.
Today, we are so much more! What was once a single food cart is now a bustling box lunch and full-service catering company, grown from the hearts and hard work of the women who sustain us. The 2014 merge of the Doma and Freedom a la Cart combined support services with social enterprise through one deliciously harmonious brand.
As these amazing women continue on their journey of rescue, rehabilitation and restoration – the ultimate path toward a triumphant return to society – the result couldn’t be more appetizing: Cause Cuisine.
To deliver a genuine culinary experience to our patrons, Freedom a la Cart creates fresh, flavorful food full of eclectic , unexpected choices. Whenever possible, we choose local sources for our ingredients, giving back to the community that gives so much to us.
