Mexican Restaurants Deliver Food To Hundreds Of Farmworkers Laboring In The Fields
Feeding those that feed us.
Employees at Chapala Grill and Azul Mexican Grill in California's Central Valley were up "bright and early this morning," making hundreds of burritos "to feed those that feed us: Farmworkers," reports ABC7 News.
While most of the country shelters-at-home, farmworkers like those in California's Central Valley are working in the fields, day in and day out, harvesting the produce that keeps America fed. They put food on our tables, while struggling to put food on their own.
So, two Central Valley Mexican restaurants, Chapala Grill and Azul Mexican Grill, decided to do something to show their respect and appreciation.
The restaurants' owners and employees were up before dawn, preparing hundreds of burritos and packing meals with chips, fruit, and drinks. Then, they drove out to the fields.
They handed out hundreds of early morning meals, made possible in part by many customer donations, to workers at a packing house in Dinuba and a cattle company in Hanford.
Chapala Grill owner Pedro Mendez said:
"It was all about giving a little back to all the hardworking people who make it possible for guys like me to stay open."
