Abuelo’s Mexican Restaurant, famous for its authentic, made-from-scratch Mexican cuisine, announced today that the restaurant chain will celebrate National Margarita Day on February 22 with a fundraiser to help end childhood hunger. For each Premium Margarita sold at any of its locations, Abuelo’s will donate $2 to No Kid Hungry, a national campaign working to end childhood hunger in America.
Each Abuelo’s guest who purchases a premium hand-crafted margarita at Abuelo’s on National Margarita Day will receive a No Kid Hungry sticker to show support for the cause, which provides the one in seven children living with hunger with the nutritious meals they need. Beverages included in the National Margarita Day fundraiser for No Kid Hungry include the popular El Jefe Margarita, Platinum Hand-Shaken Margarita, Skinny Margarita and Cerveza Rita.
“Giving back to our communities is part of our DNA at Abuelo’s, and we partner with programs that benefit children, education and our military nationwide,” said Bob Lin, President of Abuelo’s. “We’ve worked with No Kid Hungry for several years, most recently to celebrate Abuelo’s 30th anniversary, when we raised $12,000 dollars to fight childhood hunger. We’re proud to work with No Kid Hungry again because children shouldn’t have to worry about where their next meal is coming from.”
Despite the abundance of food in America, too many children still live with hunger. No Kid Hungry addresses this problem through effective food programs such as school breakfast, which ensures that children don’t start the day on an empty stomach, and summer meal programs that provide kids with nutritious meals when school is out of session.
