#FeedtheFirst - Burritos for 1st Responders


With the Covid-19 pandemic threatening our communities and way of life, for those of us “sheltering-in-place” trying to make a greater impact on the front lines of the battle can be challenging.

Best Coast Burritos a local independent bay area business owned and operated by Alvin Shen in Oakland California, is gearing up in an effort to rally support for our first responders by sending burritos to feed emergency staffs in the East Bay.

This is a great way the community can help support hyper local small businesses struggling during this time of need, and also help feed the first responders and medical professionals fighting the Covid-19 disease. (ER Staff, Paramedics, Police and Fire)


If at all possible, please donate in increments of $10. By doing so, you'll be sending a burrito to the front lines, feeding, encouraging and powering those laying it all on the line as we try to flatten the curve and heal our nation. Thank you!!!
