When we started the bento program, it was a way for us to keep paying our staff. These guys are the backbone of our restaurant and we didn't want to see them be just some collateral damage to the virus. It was going to be just the two of us cooking, packing and delivering, with all the proceeds going to our employees. Through your generous donations, it quickly became a movement to feed our fearless first responders. All of the proceeds from your donations will be going to our staff.
