The Food and Beverage Team truly embodies Taco Bell’s belief in showing Mas Heart by serving our community. For years now, the team has dedicated their time and energy to supporting the Harbor Area Boys & Girls Club of Costa Mesa. In 2015, the team recognized Club’s need for teen programming and leveraged their food expertise to host multiple fundraiser luncheons at our restaurant support center. The luncheons raised more than $10,000 for the programs. In addition to their fundraisers, they volunteered their time at the Club, feeding the kids and their families over the holiday season. They even opened their kitchen doors to a group of Club teens to expose them to the amazing career opportunities in the food industry and inspire them to graduate.
