Colorado Springs — Filipino food trucks launched in 2017.

Owners Lorry Martinez and Adan Garcia have loved cooking since they were little.

In 2020, when the pandemic broke out, the wheel business switched gears.

Instead of closing, the business has grown.

Every weekend since the pandemic began, Filipinos were founded outside the Springs Rescue mission.

“We can go to the kitchen and have a hot meal, they can’t,” said owner Adan Garcia.

Every week, the couple serves about 200 people living on the street.

“Everyone is waiting. They line up. They tell us how blessed they are to get food and fresh food,” said owner Lordy Martinez.

It’s a reaction, Martinez says it’s all worth it. “They make you cry when they say that word. You can feel it from their hearts.”

“They are very grateful. It’s great to see them joking on the sidewalk, because they’re happy now,” Garcia said.

For Garcia, it’s more than a kind act, and it’s a way of giving back, as he once had to rely on the generosity of others for food in the past. “I’m hungry and I know how I feel.”
