Taco Tuesday COVID-19 LA Initiative

We are teaming up with a Los Angeles staple, Jaliscos Mobile Taco Grill for this 'Taco Tuesday' initiative.  They have been in the taco game for over fifteen years catering to celebs, the Lakers, movie sets and more.  We will be putting together, assembling and delivering ready-to-eat taco meal kits to healthcare, hospital and relief center workers around Los Angeles.  This is a small gesture to show our appreciation to the heroes in our city working long hours on the front line and risking their health by delivering a delicious 'Taco Tuesday' ready-to-eat taco meal kit to them.  Our goal is to deliver 1,000 tacos to various hospitals and healthcare centers throughout the city every Tuesday until this crisis is behind us.  Stay tuned for details on where our 'Taco Tuesday' drops will be.

The LA Times reported today (March 26th) that the number of coronavirus cases in California has surged past 3,000 and officials say the COVID-19 growth rate is such that it could overwhelm hospitals in the coming days and weeks.  Mayor Garcetti said, “The worst days are still ahead”.  Los Angeles County is getting hit hard each day— As of today, we have 1,216 cases, 421 new cases, 21 deaths and more than 9,400 residents have been tested.

We will be vigilant with proper hygiene practices, including frequent and proper hand-washing and routine cleaning of all surfaces.  All food will be prepared safely and with the utmost care, bagged up by our gloved team member and delivered by a gloved messenger.  We will take necessary precautions to monitor the health of anyone working on this project by having team members maintain an approximate distance of 6 feet from others, when possible.

If you or anyone you know is interested in donating to the effort, 100% of all donations will go toward supplies & food.  If you are unable to donate, please share with your friends and help us spread the good word.  Anything you can do is greatly appreciated.

Also, if you have any suggestions on drop locations please let us know.

Continue to stay safe & healthy!  Thank you for your help in supporting our community!
