Imagine a scenario that allows you to eat tasty Tex-Mex dishes while you donate to a cause that feeds hungry children at the same time. That’s the idea behind a restaurant group based in Conway, Arkansas called Tacos 4 Life Grill, and now it’s coming to Fayetteville.
The idea is simple: for every meal purchased, the restaurant donates the funds required to purchase one meal through the nonprofit organization, Feed My Starving Children. At this time, that amount is reported to be .22 cents. The restaurant’s two locations in Conway currently provide meals for children in Swaziland, Africa, but the new restaurant in Fayetteville will be supporting children in Honduras.
The manager for the locations in Conway is Justin Young, a Springdale native. Young and his wife, Kristen, who manages the company’s social media and marketing efforts, are working with owners Austin and Ashton Samuelson to get the Northwest Arkansas location open in Evelyn Hills Shopping Center later this summer. Check out their menu and more about their story on their website.
“Our main focus as a restaurant is to feed hungry children by providing customers with made-from-scratch, quality food,” said Austin. “Opening another location will allow us to build relationships in a new community and raise even more meals for hungry children.”
According to the press release put out by Tacos 4 Life Grill, the company has donated over 360,000 meals since they opened their first store in June 2014. Surely, Northwest Arkansas can beat that. Do we smell a challenge?
