State Rep Elizabeth “Lisa” Hernandez, D-Cicero, was joined by several elected officials to deliver meals to nearly 200 area families on Thanksgiving. State Senator Tony Muñoz, D-Chicago, Ald. Michael Rodriguez, W-22, State Rep. Aaron Ortiz, D-Chicago, and Cook County Commissioner Alma Anaya, 7 District, were among the local leaders that joined dozens of volunteers to personally deliver the hot, fresh meals prepared by Nuevo León restaurant, a Little Village institution. “Now more than ever we need to provide assistance to our neighborhoods however we can,” Hernandez said. “Ensuring that families have access to a meal on Thanksgiving is just one way we have worked to fight hunger and bring cheer to hundreds of residents this holiday season.” The initiative, which fed over 1000 individuals, was sponsored in part by PepsiCo, SALUD, Love Soldiers, the Power Seeds foundation, the Rotary Club of Little Village, and the Little Village Community Foundation.
