LAS CRUCES – In an effort to help refugees fleeing Ukraine as Russia continues its attack on the sovereign nation, AmadorLive Eatery & Entertainment District has partnered with World Central Kitchen.
Max Bower, owner of The Amador, announced the partnership via social media. A special “Menu Feed Ukraine” is offered until March 5 and all proceeds from menu purchases will be donated to WCK.
WCK is a non-profit organization founded by celebrity chef José Andrés in response to an earthquake that displaced Haitians in 2010. WCK, which has since helped many communities affected by natural, climatic or humanitarian crises, says responding to the Ukrainian invasion by setting up border crossings in Poland to feed displaced people.
The Amador “Feed Ukraine” menu includes Hatch Bacon ‘N’ Beer cheese fries, fried pickle spears, onion rings, scampi with red chili prawns, red or green enchiladas and chocolate brownies for dessert.
Rock and roll group Triple Jack will perform on the terrace of the Amador as part of a benefit show on Friday evening.
“Please come and help us raise funds and get them where they need to go as soon as possible. It’s one of the most effective ways to help,” Bower said in the video. “Long live Ukraine.”
