Margaritas Mexican Restaurant Donates Over $6,600 to End 68 Hours of Hunger

Funds Raised From the Return of the Taco Gigante Promotion

November 05, 2015 // Franchising.com // Margaritas Mexican Restaurant wrapped up its month long National Taco Day celebration by donating over $6,600 to End 68 Hours of Hunger. The legendary Taco Gigante made its return from Sept. 29 – Oct. 27, and $1 from each $11.99 taco purchased went toward the End 68 Hours of Hunger donation. Additionally, five percent of the lounge sales from the Full Moon Margarita Madness Parties on Oct. 27 went toward the charity.

End 68 Hours of Hunger is a nonprofit organization aimed at finding a solution to the approximately 68 hours of hunger some school children experience between the free lunch they receive in school on Friday afternoon and the free breakfast they receive in school on Monday morning. 100 percent of the funds donated goes to the purchase of food for these children.

“Making a difference in our community through charitable donations is one way we enjoy giving back,” said Margaritas president, Hugo Marin. “End 68 Hours of Hunger is a cause we are passionate about, and we want to help end the hunger some children experience over the weekend.”

The two-pound Taco Gigante is hand-crafted, made-to-order and presented in a 12-inch tortilla shell. It comes stuffed with lettuce, refried beans, Mexican rice, seasoned chicken, taco beef, pork carnitas, bacon, salsa fresca, cheese and queso sauce. It’s then topped with crema, pickled jalapenos, picante and hacienda sauce. Anyone who was able to finish the goliath received Free Tacos for a Year. Regardless of completion, $1 from every Taco Gigante purchased was donated to End 68 Hours of Hunger.
