Yasiel Puig’s Wild Horse Children’s Foundation, Magaly’s Tamales, The Knotted Apron and the LA Regional Food Bank Provide Food for 1,000+ in San Fernando
SAN FERNANDO, Calif. (April 24, 2020) – Yasiel Puig’s Wild Horse Children’s Foundation partnered with Magaly’s Tamales, The Knotted Apron and the LA Regional Food Bank on Thursday to provide a contactless drive-thru food drive for local families in the city of San Fernando on Thursday. About 100 volunteers helped distribute over 1,000 boxes of food and personal protective equipment.
In addition to 20-pound boxes of nonperishable food items provided by the LA Regional Food Bank, families received fresh fruit, burritos, salsa, pan dulce, masks, hand sanitizer, gloves and toilet paper. Some beneficiaries of these boxes received a surprise delivery from actor, Danny Trejo, and surprise FaceTime sessions with Yasiel Puig.
The abundance of food delivered to each vehicle was made possible by generous brand partners such as Mr.Tortilla, Del Monte, Chingon Bakery, Mission Foods, Gloria’s Restaurant and Bar, Flor de Lima, and Puritan Pride. Toilet paper was donated by Jessica Martin, owner of Skin Guru and Spa Source.
The food drive was made possible with the support of the City of San Fernando including Mayor Joel Fajardo, City Manager Nick Kimball, and the San Fernando Police Department.
