Stories of Feeding God's Children Hungry in Body & Spirit

More Than Tacos

More Than Tacos

Three years ago, Austin and Ashton Samuelson founded Tacos 4 Life, a taco shop on a mission. For every chef-crafted taco, rice bowl, quesadilla or salad sold, Tacos donates 22 cents to Feed My Starving Children to purchase a meal for a child in need.

To date, Tacos has raised more than 3.5 million meals to help feed kids all over the world. Their mission is to feed 1 million kids a day, and with each restaurant they open an additional 1,000 kids are fed each day.

“The food truly serves as a baseline to provide health and nourishment, then phase two of the food becomes a means of hope, consistency and love for these children,” The couple said. “It's amazing seeing how a warm meal in an environment where nothing is secure or guaranteed can make all of the difference.”

Tacos 4 Life currently operates five locations in Arkansas, will soon open six new franchise locations and have a vision to expand across the country.

This amazing company has also hosted 11 MobilePack events! This year alone, they have rallied enough volunteers to pack more than 1 million meals at MobilePack events. We are so grateful for this partnership that continues to grow with each passing day.
