The Just In Queso Foundation, Tijuana Flats’ nonprofit arm, announced a month-long campaign to raise money for Best Buddies International in partnership with the Tex-Mex-For-All original.

To kick off the campaign, Tijuana Flats and the Just In Queso Foundation begin a month-long 1,000-burrito giveaway to Best Buddies high school and college chapters. Then, during the entire month of April, Tijuana Flats’ guests will have the option to round up their order total to the next dollar amount, make a donation, or purchase a bottle of Jason’s Mom’s Hot Sauce for $6.99 to help the Just In Queso Foundation provide support to local Best Buddies programs.

Best Buddies is a global volunteer movement dedicated to creating opportunities for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The organization facilitates one-to-one friendships, integrated employment, leadership development, and inclusive living opportunities across 3,200 chapters in 59 countries and all 50 U.S. states.

The fundraising campaign will run from April 1, 2021 to April 30, 2021, during which Just In Queso will give its round-it-up, retail and online donations to local Best Buddies offices.

“Best Buddies is making a huge difference in the lives of millions around the world,” says Meagan Gallagher, Executive Director of the Just In Queso Foundation. “We are honored to be able to make a difference in the communities they serve through our April fundraising campaign and can’t wait to offer our guests the best Tex-Mex around in the process. Through this campaign, we are also offering opportunities for our employees to sign up as citizen volunteers through the Best Buddies program.”

“We are thrilled to partner with Tijuana Flats and the Just In Queso Foundation and love when companies share our vision for inclusion for people with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD),” adds Danielle Simms, Best Buddies Orlando Advisory Board Member. “Tijuana Flats has always been a family-favorite restaurant due to their delicious food, hot sauce bar, incredible customer service and because of their clear commitment to supporting diversity, equity and inclusion.”
