Ben's Bells: Tucson restaurant owners 'belled' for helping employees during pandemic

  • Updated

Restaurant owners Jake and Erica Muñoz are providing weekly food boxes to their employees during the pandemic.

What: Ben’s Bells promotes kindness and community involvement. Each week a person/s who makes Tucson better is “belled.”

Last week’s recipient: Jake and Erica Muñoz

Nominated by: Margaret Bly

Why: For their contribution to the community through Seis Kitchen. In response to the COVID-19 crisis, these local restaurant owners have made food boxes available to each of their employees at both locations of Seis Kitchen. Each Friday, employees have the option of taking home — at zero cost to them — milk, tortillas, beans, onions, rice, potatoes, eggs and uncooked pork, Bly wrote in her nomination letter. “Jake and Erica continue to provide work hours to each employee as best they can, allowing them to continue earning a living wage,” Bly wrote. “Jake and Erica represent all that is right in Tucson, and in America.”
