Taqueria Del Mar to give away Thanksgiving meals

Published

on

As Thanksgiving approaches, normally many people would plan to gather with friends and
families to celebrate the bountiful life most are blessed with. However, there are millions of
others who go without on Thanksgiving Day. Taqueria del Mar has decided to forgo
Tacos and Tostadas on Thanksgiving 2020 and instead turn their attention to Turkeys and
togetherness. This Thanksgiving, the restaurant wants to focus on “Unity in the Community”.

“What we take most pride in is helping those that need help the most. We have always served a traditional Thanksgiving meal on Thanksgiving using the ‘Pay what you can’ format. Some guests simply don’t want to cook at home, others can’t afford to cook at home, and a lot are somewhere in the middle. All we wanted to do was offer a comfortable, judgement free setting where all could come together as a community and celebrate Thanksgiving,” Owner Andrew Hoppen said.

Taqueria del Mar will be offering a traditional Thanksgiving dinner for free! They will
be offering a convenient “Take and Bake” one pan meal that feeds up to six people. Open to
everyone, we want to give back to those that may not have the means to celebrate Thanksgiving. They want to give back to the community that provides for us and our families each and every day.

So if you or anyone you know is in need, please contact Taqueria del Mar. We will also be offering the meal for six people to purchase for $50. As in past years, the business operates under the “Pay what you can” and “Pay it forward” principles – so if you can not afford to pay, we will not turn anyone away. And of course, if you can “Pay it Forward”, your generosity is most appreciated. All proceeds will be donated to their sister charity, the Renewed Hope House of Wellspring Living, located in Duluth GA.
