There’s a World of Redemption in This Meal – and Christian Navarro Took Forever to Find It. Say Hello; Come Eat.

When Christian Navarro was still a kid, his father took his mom Cheryl to the Los Angeles-area hospital where he worked. Cheryl tested positive for cocaine use, and her husband gave her an ultimatum: either get sober, or never see the kids again. By the time he was an adult, Christian was lost. He wanted to please his dad, be a doctor like him, but his dad just wanted him to be happy. Christian moved to Chicago and began working in restaurants, a culture which led him into the same downward spiral of addiction that his mom suffered through. He couldn’t find redemption, until he found a story – and a welcome, a place to sit at the table. He found it in food, a shared table with his loving mother. Check it out in the clip below.
