For each uploaded photo, Rubio's will donate 25 cents to Share Our Strength, a non profit for childhood hunger, and guests will receive a coupon for a complimentary All-American Taco, Rubio's new "burger with a Beach Mex twist," to use on their next visit. The fundraiser began May 26th and ends July 21st, 2009. All-American Moment photos also can be sent to Rubio's via Twitter to @Rubios_beachmex or emailed to allamerican@rubios.com.

"We are thrilled to be working with Rubio's All-American Moment fundraiser and this creative new effort to raise awareness of childhood hunger in America," said Debbie Shore, Co-Founder of Share Our Strength. "We encourage all of Rubio's fans to upload a photo of themselves to support this wonderful initiative. The money raised will help Share Our Strength fund programs that provide the resources and services to children in need throughout America."

Rubio's All-American Taco debuted on May 6th and will be on menus for a limited time. "Our goal is to raise awareness and money in support of ending childhood hunger while rewarding our guests with our new All-American Taco -- it's the All-American thing to do especially while times are tough," said Larry Rusinko, senior vice president of marketing at Rubio's, commenting about the All-American Moment fundraiser. The new Rubio's All-American Taco is a juicy, char-grilled, beef patty seasoned with flavorful spices, topped with melted American cheese, then complemented with salsa fresca, smoky garlic-chipotle mayonnaise and lettuce. It is served inside a warm, soft flour tortilla with a jalapeno pepper on the side.
