We’ve been working with our sister restaurant, Zambri’s, to support the Rapid Relief Fund which is feeding children who would otherwise rely on the school system for their daily lunches and today was the first drop! This awesome initiative is organized by the Jawl Foundation and The Victoria Foundation to feed upwards of 1000 children for the next 6 weeks.
Included in these once a week hamper drops are a 5 individual meals prepared by their usual school meal program provider but adapted for transport and storage and a bag of fresh produce. On top of that, they have asked restaurants like ours to provide family meals to be included in the hampers. Not only does this support local restaurants, but it feeds those who need it most right now.
