• Our Mission

    Real Meal Grill Detroit (RMGD) is a mission-based celebration created in partnership by E.L.I.T.E Women and Toast2U to benefit Detroiters facing homelessness.


    While REAL MEAL GRILL DETROIT nourishes the bodies and souls of our homeless community, it also provides resources to aid these individuals and families in their journey to stability. It is our hope that everyone who receives a meal at RMGD is one step closer to independence.

    Here's how the event will happen.

    Promo Event

    Prior to our Real Meal Grill, the RMGD team and volunteers engaged the local homeless community with a bag lunch giveaway. This pre-event engagement spread the word for the event and simultaneously feed those in need.
