Each month, Mealzo collaborates with one of our partners who have made an effort throughout the month to be a pillar of support for their local community. We welcome any help from donating to a local charity or event, taking environmental action, or highlighting and tackling issues in their local area.


Mealzo hopes to participate in the good causes set forward by our local heroes. This means we can acknowledge their hard work and effort and broadcast the positive vibes to everyone in their community and in our own.
