The owners of a Donegal Town restaurant have made a kind gesture to any person in need during the second lockdown.
Brothers Martin and Felipe Hernandez at La Fiesta have had to close their Mexican restaurant for sit-in guests, but they are determine to let nobody go hungry.
Chef Martin reached out to the local community this week to offer food to any person or family struggling to make ends meet.
A thoughtful post shared on the La Fiesta Facebook calls on people to get in touch, where their messages will be treated in confidence.
Martin wrote: “We are now 8 months into this pandemic and the country has been put into recession. If anyone is not working, not getting paid, has had their hours cut and runs out of food or times are just too tough, please don’t let you or your kids go to sleep on an empty stomach.
“Don’t be afraid or embarrassed to send us a private message. We will do what we can to help. It may simply be a case of dropping off a meal to your door.
“Just know that we are here if you need us.”
La Fiesta remains open for takeaways, but the generous response to the crisis has earned high praise from the local community.
“Take care of yourselves and let’s look forward to the good times that are ahead. We will get there!,” Martin added.
