“We want to give back to the community,” owner Phillip Allen said. “The community is very important for us not only because when our business does open we’re going to thrive off that community but also we live in, we see the pain, we see the suffering we see how this is affecting everybody.”

So far they have 400 bags of food to distribute, filled with oranges, ham, cheese and bread.

However, you can help.
