Funds Raised During the Restaurant’s Cinco de Mayo Promotion Will Help Provide Children With the Healthy Food They Need To Thrive
LUBBOCK, Texas, June 3, 2021 — Abuelo’s Mexican Restaurant, famous for its authentic, made-from-scratch Mexican cuisine, raised $5,000 for No Kid Hungry, a national campaign to end childhood hunger in America. The funds were raised during the restaurant’s Cinco de Mayo celebration, the latest fundraising event in the long-term partnership between Abuelo’s and No Kid Hungry. The $5,000 will help No Kid Hungry in its vital work to help provide children with the healthy food they need to thrive.
During its Cinco de Mayo celebration, Abuelo’s offered festive drink specials all day, donating $1 to No Kid Hungry for each El Jefe or Flag Margarita sold in a special promotion where customers received a souvenir party ball or Cuervo shaker. Guests who purchased one of the special margaritas or made a cash donation to No Kid Hungry also received a sticker to show their support.
New estimates show that one in six children in the U.S. could face hunger due to the coronavirus. Thanks to partners like Abuelo’s, No Kid Hungry has been able to grant nearly $80 million to over 2,000 organizations across the country helping to feed kids in need.
“Ending childhood hunger is such an important mission, so we’re proud to partner with No Kid Hungry again to help raise funds to make sure kids get the nutritious food they need,” said Abuelo’s President Robert Lin. “I want to thank all the guests who celebrated Cinco de Mayo with us this year and donated to the cause, and I’m especially grateful to our hardworking Abuelo’s team members — thank you.”
