Karalee Nielsen, co-owner of Revolutionary Eating Ventures (REV), wants to make community service a bigger part of her company’s mission.

So, REV has been lending a helping hand to two of Charleston’s biggest nonprofit organizations, the Lowcountry Food Bank and Crisis Ministries, the past two days for the company’s first-ever Annual Community Outreach.

On Monday, a number of REV’s staff members from Poe’s Tavern, Monza, Closed for Business, and both Taco Boy locations volunteered at the Lowcountry Food Bank. They aided in various projects such as landscaping, painting, and sorting food.

Today, staff members helped Crisis Ministries prepare and serve food as well as clean and assist in other tasks that needed to be done around the shelter.

It’s nice to see a hospitality company like REV giving back. Good work. Now go to Taco Boy and eat a taco or two.
