Dine Out at Abuelo’s Any Thursday in July and Help End Childhood Hunger

Funds Raised During Abuelo’s 30th Anniversary Celebration Each Thursday in July

Support “No Kid Hungry” to Help End Childhood Hunger in America

LUBBOCK, Texas – July 1, 2019 – In America, one in six children lives with hunger. This July, Abuelo’s Mexican Restaurant is making every meal count by joining thousands of restaurants nationwide to raise funds for No Kid Hungry. Famous for its authentic, made-from-scratch Mexican cuisine, Abuelo’s is celebrating the restaurant’s 30th anniversary with drink specials, fun and prizes each Thursday in July while also giving guests a chance to fight childhood hunger.

On Thursdays all month long, guests who join the restaurant’s birthday celebrations held at any of its 37 locations can donate $5 to No Kid Hungry to spin a prize wheel for a chance to win free made-from-scratch appetizers, authentic Mexican entrees, tasty desserts, delicious queso and stylish Abuelo’s swag. Guests who want to help end childhood hunger in America can also donate to No Kid Hungry at Abuelo’s without spinning the prize wheel — the choice is theirs.

“Giving back to our community is a core part of our culture at Abuelo’s,” said Bob Lin, President. “We sponsor and participate in charitable programs nationwide, and we’re proud to work with No Kid Hungry again this year to celebrate a major anniversary. Abuelo’s worked with No Kid Hungry to mark our 25th anniversary. With our guests’ help, we hope to raise even more funds this year to help kids facing hunger here in America.”

Funds raised support No Kid Hungry’s work to connect vulnerable children to effective nutrition programs like school breakfast and summer meals, creating partnerships that work to identify and break down barriers to giving children access to meals. Learn more at NoKidHungry.org.

LUBBOCK, Texas May 16, 2019 – Abuelo’s Mexican Restaurant, famous for its authentic, made-from-scratch Mexican cuisine, is pleased to announce the introduction of No Antibiotics Ever, 100% vegetarian fed chicken to their menu. The better tasting, better-for-you protein, is now available across all U.S. locations.

Dedicated to providing fresh, health-conscious Mexican cuisine, Abuelo’s has built a partnership with Coleman Natural in order to source the highest-quality chicken raised with No Antibiotics Ever and fed a 100% vegetarian diet with no animal by-products. Coleman’s industry-leading “Farm-to-Fork” program employs a responsible animal-care program and ensures complete traceability through every aspect of production and processing.

Abuelo’s has 37 full-service restaurants located in 13 states – all of which are now serving their new premium, No Antibiotics Ever chicken.

About Coleman Natural

Coleman Natural has been a pioneer in premium No Antibiotics Ever meats, part of a legacy of quality that stretches back to 1875. Decades ago, when the majority of meat producers were ramping up the use of hormones and antibiotics to pump out more pounds at lower costs, Coleman Natural was among a handful of visionary companies that stuck to keeping things simple. They believed in raising animals without using drugs for growth promotion, and putting forth the extra effort to keep them healthy without relying on antibiotics.

Coleman Natural works with family farmers throughout the country who share a conviction to provide premium No Antibiotics Ever meats. Today, the pioneering spirit of Coleman Natural is available to foodservice operators exclusively through Sysco, with premium Chicken and No Antibiotics Ever chicken and turkey options.
