Many restaurants and fast food places have been helping those with lower incomes during this time. I personally LOVE that. Helping hands are always needed and it warms my heart to see our society reaching out to help each other. And now Taco Cabana has jumped on board!
Taco Cabana is now offering free meals all summer for children 12 and under, as long they order with a parent through the drive-thru.
The restaurant chain announced the news as an aid for those in need during this crazy and hectic time.
They are offering the free meals to children 12 and under throughout the summer, every weekday from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m.
This will be for Texas locations only. Each meal will includes a bean and cheese taco, chips and queso and a drink of their choice.
In a news release, Taco Cabana stated, “Because of school closures due to COVID-19 restrictions, many children are experiencing hunger issues. One in 7 Texans experiences food insecurity, and children who rely on school and camp lunches may not have access to regular meals while schools and summer programs are closed.”
Patricia Lopez-Calleja, the senior vice president of guest engagement for Fiesta Restaurant Group, parent company of Taco Cabana, said they are hoping to provide some much needed relief to all families who have been impacted by the pandemic.
“We have been part of this community for more than 40 years, and Texas has been hit hard during these unprecedented times. We are happy to offer kids in our communities a free meal they love,” Lopez-Calleja said.
The best part? No purchase is required. An adult must accompany the child and they must be 12 or under. From what we’re reading, it has to be ordered through the drive through, but double check with your nearest location.
And that’s it! Make sure you go during the required time (11am-12pm – Monday through Friday) and get your kiddos some good food and smiles all around!
