During this time, where coronavirus is closing the doors to many restaurants and only allowing them to be open for take-out orders, Some are giving back to the community in any way they can. Tuesday morning, Santa Fe Restaurant made over 400 burritos and delivered them to farm workers in the East Valley.
Pedro Padilla, the owner of Santa Fe Restaurant said by "Giving food, we are giving love.” Padillo said he recommends people to stay home but he and his workers can't stay home because many people need them.
They were working to make sure that those, that are sometimes forgotten, were fed. Padilla said most of the fields cancelled for them to bring food, and he understands why. Though, they still had seven to eight different fields they were making food for. Padilla said we all have to be together in this situation.
He is hoping to continue to do more for those in need, all depending how the situation moves forward and if he remains allowed to work during this time.
