The government shut down left many people without money to afford food and not be able to pay the bills they needed to pay. Chef Wilkinson owns a Black-owned restaurant at the Miami International Airport and he wanted to help out some of the TSA workers, who always support his business.

Chef Wilkinson said, “These people are here every day. It’s not like they don’t want to work, they want to work — they just aren’t getting paid. I was honored and humbled to show our appreciation & gratitude to TSA workers affected.”

The free meals included a pulled pork or fish sandwich as well as a soda. Suppliers donated food to Wilkinson so he could pull off this event. If the government shutdown happens again he plans on to help out.
