Oil Spill Kitchen: A Made-in-Miami Idea in the Running for Pepsi Refresh Grant

Duncan and Shipman envisioned a truck called Oil Spill Kitchen that would travel to areas affected by the Gulf oil spill and serve healthful, complimentary food to fishermen, relief workers, and anyone affected by the spill. And they are contending for a $50,000 grant from the Pepsi Refresh Project -- a campaign where Pepsi gives away millions of dollars each month to fund "refreshing ideas."
The first time they applied for a Pepsi Refresh Grant, their idea wasn't accepted. But when Pepsi announced its "Do Good for the Gulf" Refresh Project, Duncan says they knew it was their chance.
Voting just began, and Oil Spill Kitchen must finish in the top ten in its category to receive funding. So, go on, help out the locals by casting your vote here. You have until August 31.
