$1 Million To Small Businesses & Those Battling Food Insecurity
Eager to find a way to help those who are food insecure while at the same time supporting local restaurants across the country, Marcus Lemonis launched the “Plating Change” program in November of 2020 with a $1 million donation through the Lemon-AID Foundation.
Working together with Camping World, SRX, and some of Marcus’ closest celebrity friends, Americans across the country will have their own chance to support each other and their local restaurants by donating through “Plating Change”. Individual donations though “Plating Change” will go directly to World Central Kitchen’s “Restaurants for the People”—a program that addresses the growing hunger and economic crises by paying local restaurants to cook fresh meals for their neighbors in need.
Camping World will match all individual donations up to $500,000 reaching for a total goal of $1,000,000 dedicated to fighting food insecurity.

About Plating Change
The “Plating Change” program falls under The Lemon-Aid Foundation where Marcus pledged $50M to champion his charitable mission of supporting and investing in underserved communities and small businesses. These investments will be in the form of loans and equity investments and will be designed to have a measurable charitable impact on the communities and businesses being served by the foundation. The foundation also intends to make grants to other charitable organizations that share the same mission and goals. Lemonis intends to apply the same type of rigor that he applies in his own investments to the impact investing of the foundation.
