Arkansas-grown taco restaurant, Tacos 4 Life, announced Friday that it has officially donated 20 million meals to non-profit partner Feed My Starving Children.
“Despite the economic challenges many restaurant owners have endured at the onset and during the pandemic, we have never lost sight of what matters most to us – helping end world hunger. This has been our mission for the last seven years and we remain committed – even during the most challenging times in our industry,” said Austin Samuelson, co-founder of Tacos 4 Life. “We continue to donate one meal to Feed My Starving Children for every meal sold at our restaurants. When we started this program, we dreamed of achieving these kinds of numbers. We are extremely proud to have donated 20 million meals to children in need.”
The first Tacos 4 Life opened in June 2014 in Conway. Since then, the brand has expanded to 19 locations across five states, with two more under construction. In an effort to continue its mission, the brand will soon be announcing plans to expand to new markets. The Tacos 4 Life team is actively expanding through franchisee partnerships.
Each Tacos 4 Life location raises an average of 1,000 meals daily. For every taco, salad, rice bowl, nachos or quesadilla sold, one is donated to Feed My Starving Children to feed a hungry child.
