Last Friday around 4pm, the homeless at MVCH Campus got a special treat. Luchador Food Truck came with KGRT 104 radio, and served up some really delicious red enchiladas rice and beans and a salad, while we all listened to good country music. This event was organized by Casa De Peregrinos Food Bank Exec Dir Lorenzo Alba Jr. and was in conjunction with a Thanksgiving food drive for the poor and needy in this financially challenging season.

Lorenzo also mentioned that the Luchador truck would start coming once a month to cook a hot meal for the homeless at MVCH, and that each time it will be a different kind of cuisine. “I think next month we’ll ask them to do some Italian, maybe some pasta…..”, Lorenzo grinned, watching the growing group of homeless waiting to eat.
