History of the Tamalada
“Even if we have to sell tamales…”
Latino Health Access welcomes the holiday season with its annual Tamalada or tamale party. We serve a healthy masa tamal (a starchy dough, usually corn-based), which is steamed or boiled inside a corn husk wrapper. This year’s party is December 8th.
One of our diabetes patients was the inspiration behind the event. The patient’s words echo among our employees and volunteers as they seek to disseminate health information in Orange County while empowering our residents. One patient became partially blind and could not afford the required surgery to fix his vision. Instead of simply giving up, he said he would raise the necessary $5,000, “even if I have to sell tamales.”
We are grateful for supporters like you and look forward to seeing you at our next tamale party.
