How A Gift Card And Abuela's Menudo Recipe Has Saved One Family During The Pandemic
Can menudo help with coronavirus? Not really, but it has helped one Lynwood family ease the economic toll the pandemic has taken on their livelihoods.
Our Mis Ángeles columnist Erick Galindo brings us the story of how a broke, hungry, laid-off family turned things around after receiving a gift card from a generous donor. Armed with abuela's menudo recipe and a granddaughter's ingenuity, they used that donation to start a tiny business.
"So I had this $100 gift card they gave me, and I was thinking about how I can turn it into more. So I told my grandma, 'Can you make your menudo? We can sell it. And so she did, and everyone got involved."
