WARSAW — Several local businesses partnered together and volunteered to provide 200 free meals of chicken and rice to those affected by COVID-19 in Warsaw.
A line of vehicles circled around Cardoso Café, 803 S. Buffalo St., Warsaw, at the beginning of meal distribution on Monday, April 20. The restaurant serves American and authentic Mexican food.
More than 10 volunteers from Ruoff Mortgage and The RGroup Real Estate, along with café staff, filled up styrofoam containers with piping hot food for those in line while donning face masks and gloves. Warsaw Police helped direct vehicles.
“It’s really nice to help out and give people some relief during this,” said Katy Dilley, a realtor with TheRGroup Real Estate. “We did something similar to this a couple weeks ago in Syracuse and had really good success there, so it’s nice to help out here in Warsaw.”
In addition to Cardoso Café, sponsors of the event included Ruoff Mortgage, The RGroup Real Estate, First Federal Savings Bank, Fidelity National Title, The Natasha Hernandez Team and Cone Construction.
