For this week’s video review, we ventured to The Joy Bus Diner. Located in Phoenix just off of the 51 and Shea Boulevard on the southeast side. The Joy Bus Diner is not your typical restaurant. It is a 100% nonprofit restaurant. With a mission to make our Valley a tastier, happier place, one meal at a time. They serve hearty, made-to-order breakfast and lunch fare every Tuesday – Sunday from 7 am – 2 pm. Every cent they earn they use to support The Joy Bus. A local charity that brings chef-inspired meals and caring conversations to cancer patients Valley-wide.
Per their website, “Founded and operated by Jennifer Caraway, The Joy Bus Diner™ is the culmination of her five-plus year effort to improve the lives of local cancer patients through the power of a hand delivered meal and face-to-face interaction. Inspired by a friend named Joy who had been diagnosed with ovarian cancer, Caraway started dropping off home-cooked dinners and chatting with local cancer patients in need of a little good cheer.
Over time it expanded into Valley-wide non-profit organization named The Joy Bus. Which collects and cooks donated food for volunteers to deliver to patients around the Valley in need of a friendly face and an open ear. Most important, Caraway says, she’s been embraced by the local food community, with Crooked Sky Farms and others donating fresh food. While chefs including Tracy Dempsey (Tracy Dempsey’s Originals), Gio Osso (Virtu Honest Craft, Nico) and Bernie Kantak (Citizen Public House, The Gladly) all serve on The Joy Bus Board of Directors, and Fox Restaurant Concepts donating both financial support and culinary expertise.”
In the video review, we tried a couple of their most popular dishes. Let us tell you first and foremost that they put their all into every dish. Fresh ingredients and prepared expertly. You will enjoy whatever you order and know that every dollar that you spend is going to a beautiful cause.
