Help Our Staff Get By During COVID-19

I never thought the day would come, but it did, and here we are.

A State of Emergency: Every restaurant shut down because of the Corona Virus. 

Los Angeles restaurants are part of the heart and soul of this city.  The impact of shutting down every restaurant is a massive blow to the service workers and small-business owners whose livelihoods are bound to be left in disarray. 

One of our biggest concerns is our staff, they work so hard for us, day in and day out.  Many of them spending more hours in our restaurants rather than at home with their own families. 

We find solace in knowing that we are all in this together and that this too shall pass.  In the interim, our intention is to help our staff get their basic needs covered: food and rent.  And, with a big heart full of courage, we're asking for your support. No amount is too small. 

All of us here at Cocinas Y Calaveras are so grateful for the relationships we've built over the course of 11 years.  We cannot thank you enough for allowing us to be of service to you. This is a big chance to make a difference in our staffs' lives and you're making it possible.  

With the utmost respect and gratitude,

Jesse Angel Gomez & Jose Acevedo
