"We wanted to do something for our frontliners- Those who put their own lives on the line to care for the sick, for those who keep us safe and for those who keep our surroundings clean during this pandemic. So everyday (Monday - Friday) my mother cooks for 25-30 people. My sister and I pack the food, and our brother delivers to designated hospitals. Donations come from family and friends. Food suppliers have even donated their products to be included as viands."

- Franchesca Castaneda (Student, Hospitality- Hotel Operations Management)
