The food folks at Burger Lounge, Grass Run Farms and Impossible Foods, know, and that's why, on Tuesday, they'll be bringing a free lunch to the volunteers down at Tailgate Park.

"We pride ourselves on being a part of the community, especially here in San Diego and Los Angeles," Burger Lounge CEO and founder J. Dean Loring said in a news release issued Monday. "With the PETCO Park Vaccination Super Station right in our backyard…, we jumped at the chance to help our fellow Californians," adding, "we knew that a nice hot meal is just what these community members deserved."
And who knows? With food-service workers now eligible for the vaccine, maybe some Burger Loungers have an appointment for a shot later in the day?
