Abuelo’s To Celebrate National Margarita Day Again This Year With a Fundraiser To Help End Childhood Hunger

Abuelo’s Will Donate $2 to No Kid Hungry for Each Premium Margarita Sold on February 22

PLANO, Texas, Feb. 16, 2022 — Abuelo’s Mexican Restaurant, famous for its authentic, made-from-scratch Mexican cuisine, announced today that all Abuelo’s locations will again celebrate National Margarita Day on February 22 with a fundraiser to help end childhood hunger. For each regularly priced premium margarita sold at any of its restaurants, Abuelo’s will donate $2 to No Kid Hungry, a national campaign that is working to end childhood hunger in America.

When Abuelo’s guests purchase a premium hand-crafted margarita at Abuelo’s on National Margarita Day, they will receive a No Kid Hungry sticker to show support for the campaign, which provides the one in six children living with hunger the nutritious meals they need to thrive and grow. Beverages included in the National Margarita Day fundraiser for No Kid Hungry are the popular El Jefe Margarita, Platinum Hand-Shaken Margarita and Skinny Margarita. Guests can also donate to the cause without purchasing a margarita.

“We’re committed to supporting our local communities at Abuelo’s, which is why we’re proud to partner with programs that benefit children, education and our military all across the country,” said Robert Lin, President of Abuelo’s. “No Kid Hungry is a terrific campaign that we’ve worked with many times over the years, most recently to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, raising $5,000 to help end childhood hunger. We’re pleased to team up with No Kid Hungry again because no child should ever go hungry.”

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.
