Why It’s Ok to Give Tacos4Life Your Money

I don’t know how you feel about tacos but personally, I have quite the love affair. 😍 They’re on the menu just about weekly at our house. If we don’t have tacos, we have something taco-like. That being said, I also like to go out and eat tacos. It’s a major plus if I’m eating at a taco place that does something (anything!) good for the world. Enter Tacos4Life.

What you get:

What Tacos4Life does:

You’ve heard about it and seen their signs: Eat a meal. Give a Meal. When you buy one meal, one meal is donated. This is Tacos4Life‘s mission.

I’m just going to quote directly from their website:


Tacos 4 Life and our customers have the exciting opportunity to help end childhood hunger around the world. The strategy is simple – Tacos 4 Life will donate the funds necessary to Feed My Starving Children to purchase one meal for every meal sold in the restaurant. Childhood starvation and malnutrition is a devastating problem, claiming more than 6,200 children’s lives a day around the world. This has to be stopped and we believe we can help save lives through the Meal 4 Meal program. For every taco, quesadilla, salad or rice bowl sold, $0.22 is donated to FMSC. They have produced a scientifically developed rice pack designed to meet the needs of severely malnourished children in over 60 countries. They have consistently received the highest grades awarded for accountability and transparency. 92 percent of donations are spent on feeding programs. Tacos 4 Life works with organizations in countries like Honduras, Haiti, Belize, Dominican Republic, and Swaziland where the FMSC meals are used to help feed children in need. Many of the children there face economic and health challenges. The food is used as a foundation to provide medical care, education, and skills training. We have seen the life-changing impact the food has made first hand and the hope each meal provides. Together we can continue to provide sustainable change to children around the world through food!”

Rice packs? Really? Do they actually help?

They do help. In fact, each different type of “pack” that Feed My Starving Children uses has a specific intent for those that receive it. Read about it here. The rice is fortified. This isn’t unique to this organization. It’s literally the way you get affordable, shelf-stable nutrition into places that really need it. The World Health Organization talks about here.

Supporting Tacos4Life (or any organization like it) is doing good. This is how to get food on the ground where it needs to go. You don’t have to eat at their restaurant to support this effort though. You can donate here.

Don’t just take my word for it though, check them out as I did. Then, have your next big gathering at Tacos4Life or let them cater your next event. Maybe get in on one of their Moblie Packs. It’s basically a packing party packing meals as a community for those in need.

Most of all, just know that giving them your business is helping feed hungry people.
