PHOENIX — Frontline workers, families in need or just those who need an emotional boost can get free food from Mexican restaurant Someburros on Wednesday.

The family-owned restaurant announced it would be giving away 5,000 free boxed meals at a drive-thru pickup from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the west parking lot at Tempe Diablo Stadium.

“A strong community is what helped us keep our first location going in 1986 when we needed it, and now it is the right thing to do for us to give back to that same community when they need it,” Co-owner Tim Vasquez said in the release.

Each box includes the restaurant’s signature bean and cheese burro, rice, chips and hot sauce.

People will be given up to six meals per vehicle, according to the release.

“This is a difficult time for all of us, but we need to come together and help each other out in our time of need.  That’s what strong communities do,” Vasquez said.

People are advised to get to the stadium early as meals are while supplies last and will go fast.

We want to hear from you.
