Buy A Meal


The Patra Project

You think your team will jump for joy when they eat our food? Imagine the look on the faces of the kindergartners we feed every day with your support! Now the meals you feed your team not only impact your bottom line, increase productivity and improve the health and well-being of your team, they also impact the lives of at-risk kids and families in your community.

With our buy a meal give a meal program, Nybll is committed to ending the imbalance and inequity in healthy food access. In the US, 1 in 4 children go to school hungry with limited access to healthy food. Because they live in what are considered “urban food deserts,” parents are forced to buy processed foods in bodegas, corner convenience stores, food banks, pantries, and fast food restaurants.

In Oakland alone there are over 600,000 children that fall below the poverty level and rely on social services to eat 1-2- and sometimes 3 meals per day. That means these children are forced to eat food bank and food pantry “leftovers,” which are often canned, highly processed food.

We are on a mission to change that by giving children what they need, what they deserve, nutritious, fresh food everyday.

Every time you order Nybll meals for your team you ensure a child doesn’t go to sleep on an empty stomach. Every meal you feed your team, feeds a child in need. Make your corporate catering mean something.

The Foundation for The Patra Project

The foundation for the Patra Project comes from the ancient Buddhist philosophy of giving and receiving. Monks in many eastern traditions carry a Patra bowl, or alms bowl with them and rely on the generosity of their community to sustain them. The monks know they will be cared for, that their Patra bowl will always be full, and the community knows the monks will bless and care for their spiritual needs. This interconnected “knowing” is the basis for our name and guiding principles. Each feels a sense of obligation in the cycle of giving and receiving. In that way, we know that by caring for the communities we serve, our needs will be met and we will all thrive and flourish.

Ways Your Team Can Make a Difference

1. Use Nybll for all your corporate catering needs: breakfast, lunch, dinner, happy hours, snack programs, events and corporate wellness initiatives. Every meal you order provides a meal for a child in need.

2. Call Nybll whenever you have excess food that shouldn’t go to waste. We’ll pick it up, free of charge, and make sure it gets into the hands of needy children and families.

3. Make a donation to help put a fridge in a local school or daycare facility.

5. Join our corporate matching program and commit to match Nybll in our donations to a local school program of your choice.
