On Aug. 3 and 10, chef Michael Fiorelli (pictured, left) of Mar'sel restaurant at Terranea Resort, Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif., joined other top Los Angeles chefs in support of Cart for a Cause to help feed the needy.

Cart for a Cause is the nation's first philanthropic meal truck. Patrons find the truck's whereabouts on Twitter or Facebook and buy lunch prepared by a L.A. chef for $10, with 100 percent of net proceeds going to help feed homebound seniors and those who are unable to prepare their own meals. Fiorelli's menu included barbecued beef bahn mi with house pickled vegetables, jalapeño, cilantro and chili aioli; and crispy roasted eggplant cake with marinated vegetables and aged provolone.
