As Melbournites, we’re lucky to live in a city teeming with incredibly eclectic places to eat and drink. Now, The Voodoo Jerk Truck and Los Barbudos in Fitzroy are providing you the chance to give back - and the more food you eat and the more booze you drink, the more you’ll be helping someone in need.
The Voodoo Jerk Truck and Los Barbudos are teaming up, each month, with a different local charity to raise funds and awareness among Melbournites, by serving African food and plenty of rum.
Every Monday, the truck will be donating $10 from each African Feast sold, which includes braised goat, char-grilled cauliflower, injera bread and other amazing flavours, to the charity selected that month. The feast is just $40 for two people, and we promise you won’t leave hungry.
The last Monday of the month, Los Barbudos will host ‘Booze for a Cause,’ an event sponsored by Havana Club Rum, where bar proceeds will also be donated to that month’s charity. The Voodoo Jerk Truck is conveniently located behind Los Barbudos, so feel free to bring your feast into the bar. The organisation is invited to provide more information about their efforts through presentations, speeches or simple meet and greets that evening.
The Los Voodoo crew is proud to announce they’ll be working with the Scarf Community Organisation in October to help raise funds and awareness for this amazing initiative. Each Monday throughout October, patrons can show their support by purchasing a feast for two at the Voodoo Truck and on 27th October from 6pm, the Scarf Community and its supporters will be joining Los Barbudos at ‘Booze for a Cause’.
