The morning of May 22, 2018 found Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD) firefighters from fire stations throughout downtown Los Angeles taking on Farmer Boys “Barn Burner” burger challenge to eat as many burgers as possible in just 30 minutes. With each burger worth $100 and all proceeds going to the Los Angeles Fire Department Foundation to assist our goal of equipping every LAFD firefighter with a hydration backpack, the eight participating firefighters ate a stunning 37 burgers totaling a donation of $3,700 from Farmer Boys.
The Los Angeles Fire Department Foundation would like extend a warm thank you to our friends at Farmer Boys for their generosity in helping us #supportlafd and to Fox 11 Los Angeles for bringing the contest live to their viewers. We would also like to thank LAWeekly for their article on this event that captured both the excitement of the contest as well as bringing further awareness to the Foundation’s current mission of supplying LAFD firefighters with hydration backpacks.
