Everest Foundation Teams Up with Trejo’s Tacos, LA County Supervisor to Feed East LA for Holidays

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Everest Foundation and Trejo’s Tacos set to donate 800 bowls of food to front line workers.


In support of the East LA community, as well as the many healthcare and front-line workers that still have to go into work during holidays, the Everest Foundation is teaming up with actor Danny Trejos and Trejos Tacos, as well as L.A. County Supervisor, Hilda Solis, for a drive-up food giveaway.

The East Los Angeles Civic Center will have tables set up for community members to drive up and receive their donated food bowl from Trejos Tacos. The event will also feed members of the departments housed in the Civic Center, including the Roybal Health Center, Soledad Enrichment Action Gang Intervention Program and Proyecto Child Health Care.

Organizers are encouraging community members to limit the number of people walking by utilizing the drive-up option. Security will be in place to ensure that people are wearing masks and following proper social distancing measures.
