Thank You Tacolicous!

Tacolicious School Project

Since 2012, Tacolicious has made public education its priority, investing back into the Bay Area community through the Tacolicious School Project. For Tacolicious owners Joe Hargrave and Sara Deseran, this mission is personal. Since kindergarten, their children have attended SF public schools.

How it works: From September to May, each of our SF, Palo Alto and San Jose Tacolicious locations pair up with neighboring public schools, donating 15 percent of a month’s worth of Monday’s proceeds. Tacolicious has an annual alliance with 54 public schools. To date we have given over $1,000,000 to public education!

PALO ALTO PTA’s THANK TACOLICOUS FOR
