The Food Elevator = Love in Action

Covid-19 is especially hard on Venezuelan immigrants — many who have walked to Colombia and are now living on the streets. They are literally starving.

Due to a mandatory curfew, a group of caring Colombians are now offering sandwiches and snacks made with love delivered via a “food elevator” from their apartment balcony.

The technique was borrowed from Jimmy Kimmel.

Food banks like we have in the US are presently nonexistent in Colombia.

Any amount of money is appreciated for supplies to keep The Food Elevator going.

The Food Elevator” is led by Adriana’s niece Laura. It is a sister project of Groceries + Love = Global Healing

“We are made for love and kindness and caring. In our world we belong to one another.” ~ Adriana Del Toro

About Donna Pinto

I am originally from New Jersey and moved to Los Angeles with my family at age 12. After graduating from San Diego State University with a BA in Journalism, I had a short-stint in magazine advertising sales before landing my "dream job" with Club Med. For two years I worked at resorts in Mexico, The Bahamas, The Dominican Republic and Colorado. My husband Glenn & I met in Ixtapa, Mexico and we embarked on a two year honeymoon around the world. This was also a research project for a book we wrote called "When The Travel Bug Bites: Creative Ways to Earn, Save and Stay Abroad." I am also the author of a quote book for new graduates -- "Cheatnotes on Life: Lessons From The Classroom of Life." In 1997, we settled in San Diego and I was blessed to work part-time from home for non-profit organizations while raising our two boys. In 2010, a DCIS diagnosis changed my life. DCIS 411 is the culmination of my on-going journey and discoveries.
