On Wednesday, May 13, Chancho’s Tacos, sponsored by the L.A. Galaxy, went to the L.A. Surge Hospital to provide burritos to the men and women working at the hospital, St. Vincent Medical Center, who are caring for COVID-19 patients.
The medical personnel had a choice between carne asada and pollo asada and both were well received by the medical workers. About 250 burritos were given out.
As grateful as the medical workers were to have that treat, the employees and owner (Michael) of Chancho’s, were grateful as well to have the opportunity to work and provide something to the front line workers caring for coronavirus victims.
