Just because the government is shutdown does NOT mean people's tummies have shutdown!!
So to lend a helping hand to all of the furloughed workers, two chefs have decided to offer free food to all government employees who are currently on unpaid leave!
World famous spanish chef José Andrés was the first to make the announcement on Twitter that he would be giving away free sandwiches at his three restaurants until the shutdown was over:

Rock trio Peter Bjorn and John have just embarked upon their U.S. "All You Can Eat" tour and are giving out free grub at top local food trucks along the way!
Visit your local Eater website to find out where the band will be giving away free food when they make a tour stop through New York City, Houston, San Francisco, Miami, Los Angeles, and Washington, DC!
The Swedish band also created a special playlist for Rolling Stone of their favorite food-related tunes, including tracks from artists such as the Beach Boys, Van Halen and the Kinks. Check it out here!
Such an awesome way to not only give back to their fans, but encourage people to check out great local food they may have otherwise missed out on!
