Problem: Hunger is a problem that has been addressed in many different ways including local, regional, national, and worldwide initiatives. But, despite our best efforts, it continues to be an ever-expanding problem that is looking for unique and innovative solutions.
Challenge: To discover and implement ways to provide for those in need.
Solution: Three approaches…by:
Fighting hunger around the world;
Providing marketing opportunities for participating restaurants; and,
Helping food shelves and other providers raise funds and awareness for their causes.
Projects: In the first full year of operation, eatiply™ donated over 300,000 meals to charity by working with restaurants in Minnesota, Arkansas, and Washington.
The Future: Woodbury’s goal is to expand to all 50 states and to have at least 50 participating restaurants in each state. He is seeking an initial round of financing to expedite growth and to greatly increase the number of meals that can be donated to charity partners. Also, Mr. Woodbury plans to launch another related concept called drinkiply™ which will work on the same partnership concept as eatiply™ but will provide clean drinking water to people in developing countries.

El Borrego started in a driveway with one customer, but quickly grew with people traveling hours for the "El Borrego", which translates to the lamb. They started with a quarter of a pound of meat and in just 3 months they were going through 600 pounds of meat in one weekend. Soon, they needed a restaurant and went to SCORE to help them get started.
4280 El Cajon Blvd
El Borrego has grown from a small local operation to a large restaurant, catering and may soon be at your local grocer. They continue to grow and offer healthy options for the community from barbacoa to birra, beef or goat stew to home-made pozole, quesadillas and pancita. El Borrego has been in business for nearly 15 years and has been featured in the San Diego Reader, City Beat, and Union Tribune and on NBC and ABC. El Borrego is located at 4280 El Cajon Blvd, San Diego, CA 92105. They offer on-site dining and catering.
How SCORE Helped
SCORE mentor, Elias Sheinberg helped Rodnia Navarro and her mother, Rosario Sotelo create a formal business plan to start their business as an authentic Mexican restaurant. He assisted them in finding the right immigration lawyer, real estate layer, business accountant, business bank account and even their restaurant location. Mr. Sheinberg's contacts with a remodeling business helped Ms. Navarro remodel the restaurant location at a very low-cost. Mr. Sheinberg gave advice along the way and assisted the business during the recession.
