GTA has partnered with several small businesses to support Guam’s frontline heroes through meals, care packages, and donations for patients in isolation via food trucks on the premises of the Guam Memorial Hospital.
Despite the pandemic having an effect on their business, Jason and Kari Dydasco, owners of the Hafa Huli food truck, agreed with GTA to participate in providing hot meals to GMH’s frontline heroes.
Hafa Huli had started serving hot meals Wednesday morning at Guam Memorial Hospital and will continue through September 29.
In an interview with PNC, the Dydyascos mention their struggles in running a food truck during the pandemic.
Their son cannot be in school and they had to alter their business hours. Fortunately, their customers have been supportive of their schedule change and the need to accommodate having a 4-year-old on the food truck.
“When our regular customers don’t get a check, we don’t get a check. So partnering with GTA has come at the right time because the business has been slow,” Dydasco said.
Meanwhile, Hafa Huli’s front-line hero customers feel great about having free meals.
Angie Eustaquio, a GMH pharmacist, said: “It’s so great because sometimes we do not think about food or lunch and it’s awesome to know the community is coming together.”
A & L foods will be serving hot meals to front line heroes at Guam Memorial Hospital starting September 30 through October 6 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
