We have heard that teachers help students bring home meals when they have not had enough. When we saw this story, tears not only in my eyes, but also Alex! I don't know if you know, but Alex and I are private owners at a company called Tiller & Hatch, and we decided to donate [sic] an annual value [sic] to their delicious, healthy meals for students and the food pantry at their school. 🍽✨ That's why owning a business and owning real estate in companies (not licensing) is so important to me and Alex, especially as Latinos. It's about showing our community, it can be life. You can take responsibility and take ownership. This allows us to have a say in creating things that improve people's lives better, and we have partners who share our passion for giving back. Because the return and presence of other people is really the most important thing. Are we happy to work with partners who also believe that no child should NEVER go hungry. Everyone should have access to delicious, nutritious food. It was my favorite time of the month and it was one of the best things we could do. "
