For the past week, I’ve been on the island of Jost Van Dyke in the British Virgin Islands, volunteering and helping crews clean up debris from Hurricane Irma, which happened almost a year ago. This island was hit hard and it still hurting. The work was grueling and involved getting debris off the hillsides. A lot of people on this island still live in tents. This was an amazing experience and I met some amazing and wonderful people with incredible stories. I’m hope to have the opportunity to go back and help out more.
Neiva and Alan Romero opened El Local food truck in April 2017. The truck started having mechanical issues after Hurricane Irma. Since then, they’ve been serving their authentic Mexican dishes out of a mobile food stand, particularly outside of Momentum Brewery, as seen on July 25, 2018. 📷: @moriahratner #SWFL#HurricaneIrma#tacos#ElLocal
