Beaver, WV (WOAY) – Mexican restaurant El Mariachi in Beaver is serving free meals to essential workers, and the Beaver Volunteer Fire department is helping the restaurant deliver those meals.
“We get a chance to show up and bring lunch which seems like a small thing, but it’s really a big thing that they haven’t been forgotten. So hopefully this helps them feel encouraged, today we got a chance to go to two medical facilities to help encourage those nurses, doctors, and pharmacists as they are helping our community,” said Public Information Officer Will Davis.
El Mariachi and Beaver Volunteer Fire Department are teaming up to give food to frontline workers who help in the fight against COVID-19.
“It was really nice they wanted to partner with us. We at the fire department, of course, love coming to El Mariachi that’s our go-to after training lots of times. Or even on the way back from a fire call. We’ll call them and they’ll have some wings ready for us or fajitas so we know each other. When they wanted to help continue donating that the church started they called the fire department,” said Davis.
Over the last two weeks, the Mexican restaurant and the Volunteer fire department have delivered an estimated 40 meals a day.
“We’ll go to one location with 15 to 20 meals and go to the second location with 15 to 20 meals. They only promise to do it to one location and actually picked two locations a day, so we been on the road trying to help encouraged people affected by COVID-19 right now,” said Davis.
El Mariachi is still open daily until 9 p.m. to the public.
