To honor the legacy of civil rights icon Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the “Full Belly, Full Hearts” campaign has extended its advocacy to 2021 by providing more hot meals to impacted workers and the most vulnerable in the community.
Food distribution will take place today, Jan. 18, from 10am to 11am in front of Majesty Chinese Restaurant. Volunteers will also deliver extra food to living quarters and to the homeless.
“In the true spirit of Dr. King, the MLK Day of Service is an opportunity to remember his life and re-commit ourselves by volunteering to serve, uplift, and support our neighbors in need,” said Jackie Che, “Full Belly, Full Hearts” project lead.
Since Labor Day weekend, the campaign has distributed hot meals every Sunday morning, providing in total more than 1,100 hot meals and grocery bags to unemployed and low-income recipients.
To celebrate the Lunar New Year, 300 meals are scheduled to be distributed again on Sunday, Feb. 7, 4pm in front of Majesty Chinese Restaurant. The meals are sponsored by Dr. Kan Hou-Sek Kim, president of Win Win Way Construction. (PR)
