What started as a single delivery of 300 meals from Wahoo’s Fish Taco to Hoag Hospital in Irvine, CA on April 12, 2020, has turned into an astounding collaboration known as the California Love Drop.
Wing Lam, Co-Founder of Wahoo’s Fish Taco and Eric Morley, Co-Founder of Blue C, have actively partnered with other organizations such as Yogurtland, Monster Energy, Hint Water, KLOS-FM, North Men’s Wear, Constellation Brands, Boston Beer Co., Left Coast Brewing Company, B Candy, Yeti, Cholula Hot Sauce, Loan Depot, Coyle Repro, Vans, Drake’s Organic Spirits, Fortis Resource Partners, The Purist Group and Antis Roofing to personally thank those on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The California Love Drop supports and fuels healthcare workers and first responders by providing meals, beverages, treats, and supplies to hospitals, medical centers, fire departments, police stations, grocery distribution centers, and more. The food deliveries have gone to several individuals and organizations from Los Angeles to San Diego, including CHOC Children’s Hospital, UCI Medical Center, Hoag Hospital, San Bernardino Community Dignity Hospital, the Dream Center, and numerous police stations and firehouses.
“It’s amazing to see the local community come together to make a difference. Many brands are stepping up to lend support, and right now, a simple act of kindness and giving back is more important than ever.” – Wing Lam.
As of June 19, 2020, the California Love Drop has delivered over 4,500 meals at 63 different locations. The plan is to keep the positive momentum going and continue to applaud the courage of our frontline heroes.
The entire team at Blue C is grateful to partner with companies that are giving back to the frontline workers who are tirelessly working around the clock to keep our communities safe. We believe in the power of humanity, and the significant impact a delicious meal can have on uplifting spirits.
