Chronic Tacos raised $10,000 in a month-long fund raising to benefit No Kid Hungry. The initiative aims to end child hunger in the U.S.
According to Michael Mohammed, CEO of Chronic Tacos, the company is encouraged to continuously ensure that more kidsin America receive proper nutrition everyday. Their work with the organization and their efforts to raise awareness on child hunger humbles the company in what they do.
"We still have plenty of work to do in order to end childhood hunger in America, but every step forward connects another child to another meal. As long as we continue to take on the journey together as a community, we can get there a lot faster," said Mohammed.
The Mexican Grill kicked of the fund raising event on Labor Day during its annual "Gringo Bandito Chronic Tacos Challenge." Hosted by MTV VJ Wee Man, the event had guests including the creator of Chronic Taco's Gringo Bandito hot sauces, Dexter Holland, Offspring front man.
The entire month of September was dedicated to raising funds for No Kid Hungry through donations and events. On September 22, 15% of all sales went to the campaign.
Debbie Shore, co-founder of Share Our Strength which manages the No Kid Hungry campaign, said, "We're inspired by how restaurants like Chronic Tacos have embraced the call to help end childhood hunger in the U.S., and are actively encouraging their friends and competitors within the restaurant industry to join them in our dine out for No Kid Hungry promotion."
Califonia-based Chronic Tacos places value on quality food, service and relationships, something that can be emphasized in its continued partnership with the No Kid Hungry campaign.
Started in 2002, the franchise has been adamant in celebrating its made-to-order third generation Mexican dishes, including pollo asado, carnitas, al pastor, carne asada, pico de gallo, and guacamole. Chronic Tacos can be found in 30 locations nationwide.
