Taco Cabana has been honored by the San Antonio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce with its Corporate Social Responsibility Award for the company’s Hurricane Harvey relief efforts in September by providing more than 10,000 meals to Houston and San Antonio residents, evacuees, first responders and American Red Cross volunteers.

“The San Antonio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce is proud to honor Taco Cabana during our 2017 Small Business Connect Summit,” said Ramiro Cavazos, president & CEO. “In recognition of their diligent efforts towards advancing procurement diversity in our community; but more importantly, for their recent humanitarian aid during the natural disasters. Taco Cabana is a wonderful example of corporate social responsibility.”

In Houston, approximately 6,000 meals were served to the elderly, children, men and women staying in area shelters, in addition to feeding approximately 1,000 American Red Cross volunteers. In San Antonio, Taco Cabana fed approximately 2,000 evacuees, as well as 2,000 first responders.

“Taco Cabana is proud to have assisted with Hurricane Harvey relief efforts,” said Chuck Locke, president of Taco Cabana. “We have always been committed to the communities we serve and will continue to do so, especially since our guests and team members have supported us tremendously through the years.”

The San Antonio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce presented Taco Cabana with the Max Navarro Leaders in Excellence under the category of Corporate Social Responsibility Award during a luncheon on Oct. 31. The organization also recognized Taco Cabana for providing opportunities for small, minorities, women and veteran-owned businesses.
