About Food Rescue US

Food Rescue US, a national nonprofit organization, is a leader in reducing both hunger and food waste in America by connecting the vast amount of healthy, fresh surplus food with the critical hunger demand.

About Café La Trova

Located on Calle Ocho in the epicenter of Little Havana at 971 SW 8th St, Miami, FL., Café La Trova is named for and inspired by the traditional Cuban music, la Trova, which originated in Santiago de Cuba; and for the cantinero, meaning professional bartender, a cultural touchstone in the Cuban community. The world famous Julio Cabrera and his team of Cantineros (Cuban bartenders) bring to life the retro Cuba atmosphere at Café La Trova with their artisanal, handcrafted cocktails while James Beard Award–winning chef Michelle Bernstein lends her culinary prowess with a contemporary take on Cuban-styled dishes.
