Legislator Sarah Anker recently joined the Middle Island Civic Association at the Golden Jalapenos restaurant in Middle Island to thank its owner, Cheflatino Siquencia (Luis), for the restaurant’s outreach to those in need during Thanksgiving. For many years, Luis has offered free dinners to local veterans, senior citizens, and anyone else in need during the Thanksgiving holiday through the Golden Jalapenos’ location in Calverton. This past Thanksgiving, Luis extended this initiative to the newly opened location in Middle Island. All were welcome to stop by and receive a hot meal free of charge.
“I want to thank Luis for his compassion and generosity to the community during this particularly difficult year,” said Legislator Anker. “Acts of kindness like this one, give us all a little extra hope. Thank you to the Middle Island Civic Association for their continued support of the community and local businesses.”
“Cheflatino Siquencia (Luis) continued the amazing community outreach started at his Calverton location by donating free Thanksgiving meals to veterans and anyone else in need from his new Middle Island Golden Jalapenos Cafe in 2020,” said Middle Island Civic Association President Gail Lynch-Bailey. “No questions asked, if you needed a dinner, Luis gave you one!”
