Burritos with a Conscience: Papalote on Fulton is Donating Cash for Philippines Flood Relief
If you plan on scarfing an achiote tofu burrito or special chicken mole at Papalote in the near future, consider booking time for Friday, October 9. All day (and night), Papalote's Fulton Street location (1777 Fulton at Masonic) will donate 30 percent of all sales to help support the victims of Tropical Storm Ketsana (aka Ondoy) in the Philippines. As you probably know, this is the biggest flooding and rainfall to hit the multi-island nation in over 40 years -- hundreds of thousands of victims have been left homeless, injured, or without belongings. If you can't make it on October 9, donations can also be made to BAYAN-USA, which is coordinating donations of food, clothing, and other basics for those in crisis. Yesterday, SOMA takeout restaurant Little Skillet announced it was organizing a street-food benefit this Friday, October 2, for flood survivors.
