Come for the Music, Stay for the Cause
$26,000 raised to date
Please see our ABOUT page as we now have clear direction on our new mission.
Utilizing our partnership with Gastro 638 we are able to provide a nutritious meal for one person for about 30 pesos. That's $1.35 USD. Most of us spend more than that on a cup of coffee.
Let us put that in a different perspective. For a little over $3,000 USD, we can provide 2400 meals. Think what $10,000 or $20,000 can do.
Please don't think you need to donate thousands. $5.00 here, $10.00 there, it all adds up. If you can afford more, then please, by all means, donate more.
All money over $9,600 (applied to Boo Bar Staff) that we have raised will be used as follows:
10% to be used towards CFE and Propane bills for those in need
$250 USD per chef, per month (there are currently four chefs) to help them sustain their own family needs
Remaining amount will be used towards the needs of Gastro 638 as outlined in the below link.
We have tried to make it as simple as possible for you to donate to our cause:

Visit Rocky Point!
Shop on your own and bring what Gastro 638 needs
Consider supporting local grocers Salas y Monroy, Zoelia and La Cañada who have played a pivotal role in Gastro 638’s ability to source food.
Be cautious to not take all the food from these stores so that our mission does not impact those that can help themselves
Shop for supplies at YOUR local grocery stores and bring them down.
You may drop all Gastro 638 supplies off at Boo Bar (We are reaching out to other locations for drop off points as well)

Muchas gracias! Let’s hold up our cold Tecate, Mexican Moonshine, or drink of choice, and crank up the party tunes while we hit confirm on those donation buttons!
