Gustitos Baricuas is a Latino Catering Business that hopes to become a co-op! It's an initiative sponsored and founded by Mariam Orengo and Manos Unidas Multicultural Educational Co-op.
Mariam Orengo, a Puerto Rican native, has been utilizing her incredible cooking skills to provide a form of social entrepreneurship for Manos Unidas these last 3 years! She raised over $7000 in funds for her Puerto Rican community to rebuild their roofs after the hurricane in 2017 and then raised funds again to support people after the 2018 earthquake. She has also been and is a catering partner to anchor institutions like Berkshire Community College and Jacob's Pillow community events.
Most notably, as of recent, she supports Atravasendo Estos Junto Collective by taking alternate weeks serving and helping to deliver over 200 meals to Latino and low income families in Pittsfield, MA as a form of food stability during this difficult pandemic. Her delicious cuisine is also available to your family and you can support her catering business by calling her at 413-310-8944 or messaging her on facebook at Gustitos Boricua - https://www.facobook.com/Gustitos-boricua-108729413847870/
We are supporting Mariam in raising money for her own food truck to be held at O.U.R.
Resurge community center. A food truck is also an easy way for her and her collective to serve food at local events! Any donation amount counts and we thank you for supporting Mariam the way that she supports her community everyday!
