50-year-old ‘Top Chef’ host Padma Lakshmi loves delivering pizza!
Yesterday night Lakshmi personally handed out 150 pizzas to workers striking in the Bronx, New York, at Hunt’s Point Product Market…The workers are striking because they’ve been asking for a pay-rise of $1 an hour and better healthcare coverage due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Hunt’s Point Product has been at the receiving end of millions of dollars in PPP loans and is the main supplier of produce in the area1
Lakshmi apparently “wanted to do something to show her support when she read about the situation.” Also joining Lakshmi was 31-year-old U.S. representative for New York Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who has been a vocal supporter of the workers. Take a look at Padma delivering the pizzas below and let us know what you think.
