Peredo told BuzzFeed News that he had been in Starbucks studying when he texted Mendoza to ask him for food because he was hungry.

Mendoza agreed and brought a banana along with him on the 50-mile journey.

Mendoza said he didn't mind making the journey as they hadn't met up for two weeks and always travel this distance.

Mendoza said he didn't mind making the journey as they hadn't met up for two weeks and always travel this distance.

About an hour later Mendoza finally arrived and they ended up sharing the banana.
