Is it HOT in here or is just our tamales?

12.7.2016 | St. Francis Center’s 6th-Annual TOP TAMALE Fundraiser is really heating up! We have sold more than 330 dozen tamales, raising funds to benefit programs for the extremely-low income guests who utilize our pantry program. Meet Lourdes, one of the TOP TAMALE chefs:

Lourdes, originally introduced to St. Francis Center through a friend who utilizes our services, has been coming to the center for a year and a half. She and her husband struggle to make ends meet for their three sons and two daughters. Lourdes relies on the fresh, nutritious groceries and staples like meat, beans and rice provided through our Pantry Services.

Like the 1,190 families registered in our program, Lourdes’ family falls well below the federal poverty level. With the steep cost of living in L.A., almost 60% of her monthly income goes toward rent. Our comprehensive services not only provide her family with the basics, but she also visits the nurse during Health & Hygiene Services, utilizes our diaper program, and her daughter went to last year’s summer camp program. She is also a first-time TOP TAMALE winner for her delicious cheese tamale.

Will you help bring joy to our guests like Lourdes and her family this holiday season? There is still time to order tamales online here or calling 213-747-5347 x 102.
Tamales make great gifts and are on excellent addition to any home or work celebration or holiday party.
