OUR STORY

Founded in 2015, Social Innovation Lab (SIL) began as an idea to fuse innovative, research-driven practices and the non-profit format, with the end goal being to improve social programs that benefit the disempowered, disenfranchised, and at-risk populations.

That Pop-Up Restaurant

Combating Food Scarcity

That Pop-Up Restaurant (TPUR) is an innovative social program that offers free meals to youth between the ages of 1-18 and operates as a summer feeding program. While there are specific criteria that a summer feeding program must meet, that doesn't mean the food has to be bland and boring. The format at of TPUR shakes up the summer feeding program format by providing quality food options that taste good and are presented in an environment free of social stigmas that are typically associated with summer feeding programs.
