Tomorrow evening, Taco Sisters Restaurant will be cooking and donating plate lunches to some of those affected by rampant unemployment caused by policies adapted to quell the pandemic spread of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19.
The locally-owned and operated restaurant, which started in an old house on Johnston Street near the railroad tracks near Downtown Lafayette, is donating food via a partnership with non-profit organization, Love of People, through donations made to its initiative, “The Lending Closet,” and will be distributed to members of the Upper Lafayette community.
The Lending Closet has operated through the Blue Monday Mission to serve and supply creatives with goods and services, and both will partner with Taco Sisters.
Taco Sisters website boasts their tacos as “the most delicious tacos you’ve ever had.” They are made with fresh gulf fish, smoked gulf shrimp or savory meats and poultry — all of which are never frozen. It also serves brisket burritos, veggie tacos and salads made with fresh ingredients and “lots of love.”
It’s that love that inspired them to collaborate once again with the Blue Monday Mission’s Community Meals program to feed members of the community. Donations from local businesses have secured more than 50 meals, but any additional donations will be routed directly toward preparing and giving away more food.
If you'd like to help by donating or you'd like to sign up to receive meals, send a message at https://www.facebook.com/loveofpeopleLOP/
