Immigrant feeds 400 families 3 days a week from his Silver Spring garage

Three days a week, a semi-truck pulls up to Rufino Fuentes’ home in Silver Spring with dozens of pallets of food.

The immigrant from El Salvador has been sharing food with others three days a week during the pandemic while holding a full-time job.

“I have 400 boxes here which is ready to bless 400 families,” Fuentes said. [WJLA]
