Eating tacos is always a great idea, but this month you can chow down on delicious, super-sustainable Ocean Wise tacos and know that you’re helping out those in need too. Tacofino is marking the first anniversary of its flagship Gastown location by serving up a taco-tastic fundraiser deal. On Saturday, Jan. 30 between 11 a.m. and midnight, Tacofino’s Burrito Bar at 15 West Cordova St. will offer their famous Baja-style fish tacos at half-price ($3 per order), with all proceeds donated to Potluck Café Society, an outreach program in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside (DTES) that creates jobs for people with barriers to employment and provides healthy food options.
Social media fiends will be able to help out even more as an additional $1 will also be donated by Tacofino to Potluck Café Society with every use of the hashtag #tacoversary shared to Instagram or Twitter between now and Saturday, Jan. 30.
“We’re so thankful to both our customers and the local neighbourhood for embracing us over the past year and we wanted to give a little something back to show our gratitude,” says Kaeli Robinsong, who co-founded the original Tacofino Cantina in Tofino, BC with Jason Sussman in 2009.
