Central California Animal Disaster Team Lunches From CVLLC –  30 people served

When Central California Animal Disaster Team Resource Program Director, Lion Jeannie Sa, said she and her volunteers were too busy to take a break to find food, Selma Central Valley jumped into action. Lion Max Abe contacted Lions Bev and Jarrett Cho of Cho’s Kitchen in Selma, to ask if 30 lunches could be donated as soon as possible. Within 2 days, 30 boxed lunches of orange chicken, chow mein, fried rice, fortune cookies, and snacks were delivered to Fresno Fairgrounds where CCADT was taking care of up to 350 animals displaced by the Creek Fire in the hills near Fresno. Labels affixed to each boxed lunch relayed the heartfelt appreciation for their dedication and commitment to care for pets and animals of evacuated families.
