All of these North American ethical lunch spots attempt to bring community together through fostering environment. What is more, the menus all include healthy food -- some vegan, gluten-free and vegetarian options -- as well as fair trade and organic bites. Out of This World Cafe, based in Toronto, Ontario, takes its social mission a step further by engaging the psychiatric recovery community in partnership with the Center for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH).
All of these ethical lunch spots are physical places where you can grab a bite, but there's one that has followed along the latest food craze: trucks. Texans Canteen is based in Austin, which is top-notch when it comes to food trucks, and raises money for Austin Can Academy while serving tacos, burgers and sandwiches.
