Galaxy fans are missing their team this season, along with the rest of Major League Soccer. But the team isn’t staying inactive right now. As part of National Hospitals Week they have been teaming up with Chancho’s Tacos to provide for the people of their community. Their most recent contribution will be Wednesday, May 13, at the Los Angeles Surge Hospital on west Third St. in Los Angeles. Below is their information.

LOS ANGELES (Tuesday, May 12, 2020) – As part of the TOGETHER AT HOME initiative and in conjunction with National Hospital Week, the LA Galaxy and Chancho’s Tacos will send the LA Galaxy-branded taco truck to Los Angeles Surge Hospital – previously the St. Vincent Medical Center – on Wednesday, May 13 at 11 a.m. PT to provide 250 meals to hospital workers. The LA Surge Hospital, which is being overseen by Dignity Health, reopened in late April as a temporary response to the coronavirus. The Los Angeles Surge Hospital is accepting only individuals diagnosed with COVID-19.

Last month, the LA Galaxy and Chancho’s Tacos collaborated to offer meals those affected by the pandemic throughout Los Angeles, including medical workers at Dignity Health, volunteers at Carson elementary schools and those working in local grocery stores.

This month, the club announced expanded TOGETHER AT HOME community initiatives. The additional measures include a community blood drive at Dignity Health Sports Park on Thursday, May 21 and Thursday, June 4, in conjunction with the American Red Cross and Anheuser-Busch. Goalkeeper David Bingham has started a program delivering food to local first responders and health care workers across Los Angeles and will continue this week with a visit to feed healthcare workers at Dignity Health – St. Mary Medical Center. The LA Galaxy also teamed up with Kogi BBQ and LA Regional Food Bank to provide 1,000 meals to Carson residents at Dignity Health Sports Park. Kogi BBQ Chef and co-founder Roy Choi was on site with the Kogi BBQ staff to help distribute the meals to Carson residents. For all information, click here.
