Tacos 4 Life, an Arkansas-grown taco restaurant with a fresh, unique, and house-made menu as well as a mission to help end world hunger, announced its launch of seven new restaurants in five new cities in the coming months. Continuing to make an impactful difference worldwide, Tacos 4 Life cares about providing the best food and service to provide the most meals for children in need.

“We are extremely excited to be growing into these new markets and bringing our Craft tacos and our Meal 4 Meal mission to new communities,” says Austin Samuelson, co-founder of Tacos 4 Life. “We have had the privilege of donating more than 20 million meals to children in need in our first seven years of business. With this new expansion, the amount of meals we will be able to donate will accelerate quickly.”
