SAN ANTONIO, May 26, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Taco Cabana is offering kids a free lunch – including a bean and cheese taco, chips and queso and a drink – at all Texas locations through the end of summer. The program is available to kids 12 and under, every weekday from 11 a.m. to noon.
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.
"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. We hope we can provide some needed relief to the many families that have been impacted by the current health crisis," said Patricia Lopez-Calleja, senior vice president of guest engagement for Fiesta Restaurant Group, parent company of Taco Cabana.
The offer is available through the drive-thru only at all company-owned locations in Texas for a limited time. Children must be present and accompanied by a parent or guardian to receive a free meal. No purchase is necessary.
