The first Tacos 4 Life opened in Conway, Arkansas on June 9th, 2014, but our story starts long before that. In 2009, Austin and Ashton Samuelson, the Co-Founders of Tacos 4 Life, learned that over 18,000 children were dying worldwide each day due to starvation and hunger related causes. What surprised them most was that this problem is completely preventable. They knew they had to do something to help end starvation, and thus, Tacos 4 LIfe was created. Tacos 4 Life exists to serve amazing food and empower communities to join together to fight to end world hunger. Our food is fresh, craveable, and made-from-scratch, served in a unique environment. While our food is what keeps our guest coming back, it’s our commitment to the Meal 4 Meal program that is the true difference maker at Tacos 4 Life. For every taco, quesadilla, salad, or rice bowl purchased, 24 cents is donated to Feed My Starving Children, a nonprofit organization that provides meals for children in over 70 countries.
