Wondering what’s going on with the Desperados’ Greenville Avenue renovation? Looks like we’ll see some action there in the coming week. In the meantime, let’s talk about the fact that September 1 marks Desperados’ 35th anniversary. In honor of the date, Desperados will launch their Say Adios To Hunger campaign with the North Texas Food Bank. Desperados is committed to providing the cash equivalent of 35,000 meals to the NTFB and is offering a free appetizer at both locations to customers who bring in non-perishable food items to help stuff the catering van.

“We are so grateful for Desperados Mexican Restaurants’ commitment to help us end hunger. Their donation of food and funds could not come at a better time, since September is Hunger Action Month,” said Jan Pruitt, president and CEO of the North Texas Food Bank. “Through the Desperados Mexican Restaurants’ campaign, we expect to provide access to 35,000 nutritious meals to children, families and senior citizens in our community.”
“Our restaurant is more than just a business. My sons and I have built long-lasting relationships with our employees and diners. They are like family to us. The Say Adios to Hunger and Stuff the Catering Van campaign with the NTFB will allow us to give back to our community in a meaningful way. We can join one of the nation’s largest charities in its effort to wipe out hunger and celebrate with our community at the same time,” said Levy.
