Giving Thanks To Des Moines

Giving Thanks To Des Moines

I am pretty blown away by the generosity of our community. We have received an amazing outpouring of donations from the Des Moines area for Young Professionals Connection‘s Tacopocalypse Central Iowa Shelter & Services Thanksgiving Dinner. We can’t wait to turn all of these ingredients into an unforgettable holiday meal for those in need. Thank you to all who have donated food, money, and time to help us make this even better than we had hoped for. We are still taking donations at the restaurant, and those who want to volunteer contact us at [email protected] Thank you thank you!

Here is a link to the KCCI news piece on what we have going on.

 

Please Combat Hunger! and News.

Hola, Taco Fans. Tacopocalypse will not be serving mobile at Combat Hunger (12th and Locust) today due to the extreme cold.  Our mobile setup does not support this sort of weather, and it is unfortunate that Mom Nature has seen fit to make this weekend our second cold snap.  I urge you to still stop and donate food and money to help those that are less fortunate.  Tacopocalypse raised $80 yesterday through meal sales, and our workers donated almost $40 in tips earned.  I will personally match that $120 and donate 5% of our friday lunch sales directly to Combat Hunger.  So visit the CH Encampment to donate, or have lunch with us at 621 Des Moines Street and a portion of every one of your lunch dollars will go to the Food Bank Of Iowa. Thank you to all who came out of their warm surroundings yesterday to support such a great cause, so many people are counting on this to make their holiday special.
