Ready for Toys for Tamales?
From Saturday, November 27th to Saturday, December 11th, Angelenos can bring an unwrapped toy or $10 gift card to all four Chicas Tacos locations and get two holiday Tamales made from the collaboration of legendary Boyle Heights Tamale maker Angeles Lopez and James Beard Award-Winning Chef Eduardo Ruiz. All toys and gift cards will go to the children of the Venice Community Housing project. Chicas Tacos has also collaborated with the first sidewalk compliant Tamale vending cart. Revolution Carts is set to bring this project together.
Tamale maker Angeles Lopez and her mother have been making traditional holiday tamales on the corner of Olympic and Orme Ave in Boyle Heights for 12 years. Chicas Executive Chef and James Beard Award Winner Eduardo Ruiz met Lopez a few years back and wanted to showcase her culinary talents this holiday season.
With Chicas Tacos newest location at Whole Foods Venice (opened on May 5, 2021) the team at Chicas wanted to continue supporting hyper local charities. This year’s toy drive will benefit the children of the Venice Community Housing project.
