"Joaquin Jimenez's bright blue truck is delivering hope in the form of food and personal protective gear to Coastside farms where some are struggling through the COVID-19 crisis.
"On Thursday, Jimenez, farmworker liaison for Ayudando Latinos A Soñar, pulled up in front of a farmworker house at Giusti Farms, where 10 people live together. One of the residents, Julian Ruis, loaded up three boxes each of fruits and vegetables and three of nonperishable food, plus a couple of gallons of water and a $25 gift card to Mercado Mi Familia. Ruis said workers at the farm are taking the social distancing protocols seriously and are working in shifts to stay apart.
"Behle said working with Jimenez and ALAS means they’re able to get food to families who can’t come into the weekly distribution site to get it themselves. On the days the city isn’t distributing food, Coastside Hope provides the boxes for Jimenez to deliver.
“He knows the need out there in the Latino community,” Behle said."
