Myint, 32, founded Mission Street Food in San Francisco to raise money for good causes: In its first year, the pop-up restaurant donated more than $20,000 to a local food bank. Now Myint and Bowien, 28, have a permanent restaurant, Mission Chinese Food. "There's a synergy between eating and gratitude that makes sense," Myint says. "People feel thankful when they're eating."
