Processing The Pandemic: Tower Food King Owner Wonders What Happened To Some Of His Regulars

Alice Daniel
Food King owner Mohamed Ahmed

Mohamed Ahmed has worked behind the register of the Food King in Fresno’s Tower District for more than a decade. He’s the owner, and he says many of his customers are regulars coming in every week for basic staples or beer. He expects to see them, but the pandemic changed routines and put added stress on his business. As part of our occasional series on how people are processing the magnitude of the pandemic, FM89’s Alice Daniel spoke with him and produced this audio postcard.   

Alice Daniel was News Director for KVPR from 2019-2022. Daniel has a master’s degree from Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism and more than 25 years of experience as a print and radio journalist.
