Nov. 20, 2014

Chronic Tacos fundraising efforts throughout the month of October yielded a $10,000
donation to No Kid Hungry.

"From our experience raising funds for No Kid Hungry and raising awareness of childhood hunger in America, our company and our community is humbled and encouraged to help ensure every kid get the nutritious food they need, every day," said CEO Michael Mohammed in a company press release. "We still have plenty of work to do in order to end childhood hunger in America, but every step forward connects another child to another meal. As long as we continue to take on the journey together as a community, we can get there a lot faster."

Chronic Tacos kicked off its No Kid Hungry campaign in September with its annual "Gringo Bandito Chronic Tacos Challenge" on Labor Day. The event was hosted by MTV celebrity Wee Man at Wee Man's Chronic Tacos location in Redondo Beach with entertainment guests including Offspring front-man Dexter Holland, creator of the Gringo Bandito hot sauces found in Chronic Tacos locations.

Throughout the month of September, Chronic Tacos continued to raise funds for No Kid Hungry through donations and fundraising events, including its Sept. 22 promotion donating 15 percent of all sales made during the day.
