Shoutout to Gus's World Famous Fried Chicken, Prime Pizza, and Sebastian's Mediterranean Cuisine, who are all providing free food to students who rely on meal programs from their respective schools. This is additional support to the 60 grab-and-go meal distribution centers.
“The inspiration behind this program was based on speaking with our employees who are either facing this very issue or know families that are,” shares Raehan Qureshi, owner of Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken. The free meal program, which was originally only offered at Gus’s Crenshaw Boulevard location, has since expanded to all of the chain’s four Southern California restaurants. “Since we started spreading the word, we have been able to feed several hundred children,” says Qureshi. Meals are available to all school-aged children from noon to 8 p.m. everyday at Gus’s locations in Mid-City, Long Beach, Burbank, and Santa Ana. (via Eater)
