This Burrito Truck Will Bring You To Tears

Because no one deserves to go hungry.

Every morning on my way to work, I pass through Los Angeles’s Skid Row, the 4-square-mile area that separates the trendy Arts District and Downtown LA neighborhoods. It’s a humbling experience, a reminder of how easy I have it despite my many, many complaints. Mostly, though, I think of how the city has failed these thousands of people –something officials are keenly aware of and are finally working on — and how in the world they survive.

Enter Share A Meal. Every night, from Monday to Friday, volunteers make 200 burritos in a food truck and then distribute them to those who need them the most. The food truck is the brainchild of Ravi and Jacquie Singh, who started feeding the hungry after making a Sikh pilgrimage.

Beyond providing a hot meal to LA’s homeless, Share A Meal volunteers also give those they serve hope and dignity.

“When we go out and serve the community, the reception you get and how thankful and welcoming they are is so rewarding,” Alejandro Garcia, a volunteer, told NBC Los Angeles.  “If you ask about them, they get excited because people forget that these are human beings who want human interaction, too.”

These Latina Sisters Pranked Donald Trump’s Son (In Spanish) And It’s Genius

Meet Annie and Ceci Cardelle, the Internet’s latest rockstars who became a trending topic over the weekend after meeting and posting a photo with Donald Trump’s third child, Eric Trump.

But it wasn’t the fact that they got to snap a photo with Trump and his wife, Lara, that made them break the Internet, it was the huge statement that they made while doing it.

On Friday, Oct. 21 the two second-generation Cuban-Americans attended a local event in North Carolina with special guests Eric Trump and Lara. As proud Latinas and Hillary Clinton supporters, the Cardelle sisters wanted to protest.

That sparkle in her eye is everything ?.

They did it in the most trollish way ever – with a T-shirt that said: “Latinas Contra Trump” (Latinas Against Trump).

“I started getting nervous,” Annie told Buzzfeed, “because everyone there was so excited and I thought, Gosh, they’re going to get so angry if I protest this.”

But no one at the event was angry, and in fact, encouraged the sisters to take a photo with Eric and Lara. “I thought ‘contra’ was pretty clear, but I guess not,” Annie said. “I was like, ‘This is not happening. There’s no way they don’t see this shirt.’”

The photos have since gone viral on Twitter, garnering over 75K retweets and the attention of celebrities and news media alike.

“We were kind of in disbelief that no one understood this protest,” Ceci told Buzzfeed. “It really goes to show the lack of diversity in their team.”

You would think if Trump and his team know what hombre means, they’d be able to figure out that contra means against.

Oh, and by the way… “Latinas Contra Trump” is a T-shirt for sale now!
