Local cafe hands out meals to homeless

Albuquerque News

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A local cafe and bakery gave out hundreds of meals across Albuquerque Wednesday afternoon.

Employees at La Luna Bakery & Cafe prepared the food, then loaded their cars with the food to pass out to people at homeless camps and to anyone in need. Not only did they give out a full meal with a bottle of water and dessert, they even used eco-friendly packaging.

“You give back to the community. You be a part of the community so that there’s a working chain of faith around you,” said cafe owner Maria Rodriguez-Galipeau.

Despite the rain Wednesday, they surpassed their goal of giving out 400 meals.
