VAN NUYS, Calif., Nov. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As the Holidays near us, we are reminded more than ever of the importance of giving back to those less fortunate. Just like in past years, this year Chef Merito is honored to join forces with the Union Rescue Mission in the preparation of a very special Thanksgiving meal for the more than 2,000 expected guests. The volunteers at the Union Rescue Mission will use a key ingredient: Chef Merito' Mojo Criollo Marinade to prepare for what promises to be a delicious celebration.
Union Rescue Mission CEO, Rev. Andy Bales said, "Since our friends experiencing homelessness spend all year long on the streets, we decided to invite everyone into our home for a delicious meal in celebration of Thanksgiving. We even invited Chef Merito to help us spice up our Fried Turkeys with his world famous seasonings!! We hope and pray that this will be another step towards connecting our friends and moving closer to the day when not one precious person will be left on the streets of our city."
"At Chef Merito we take pride in helping enhance the flavor of our Customer's dishes. We feel very privileged to be part of this special occasion and contribute in any way possible to make this meal for thousands even more complete," stated Jose Corugedo, CEO and President. "We would like to invite our colleagues in the media and retail industry, and our customers to join us in the effort by donating their time," he added.
