God’s Love Serves A Very Special Meal this Thanksgiving

For the third year in a row, God’s Love today delivered a special holiday meal to a shelter for unaccompanied minors, children who have been detained by immigration without their parents. The shelter cares for the children while simultaneously searching for family in the United States with whom the children can be reunited. These children are often fleeing community violence, poverty, or abusive situations.

The kitchen prepares a meal that “tastes like home” for the children. Chef Daniel oversaw the pupusas de chicharron, which is a traditional Guatemalan/El Salvadorian pork-stuffed masa cake, served with a curtido which is a Salvadoran cabbage slaw. Chef Daniel also oversaw the pepian de pollo, a traditional Guatemalan chicken stew, which accompanied Chef Curtis’s arroz y frijoles. The children also received Chef Vincente’s deliciously sweet tres leches cake. God’s Love is proud to have brought a little bit of home – and a lot of love – to these children during the holiday season.
