Last Tuesday, the Coast Highway hosted a group of kids from the who were being rewarded for their achievements with a free lunch.
Some of the kids came from underprivileged homes, who normally would not get to eat at a restaurant due to financial restraints. Part of the goal of the event, according to store manager Christopher Andrews, was to educate them on healthier eating alternatives.
Each student got to select two items from the restaurant's Fresco menu, a lower-fat option available at most Taco Bells around the country. For a beverage, instead of soada, they were given a choice between water or low-fat milk.
After lunch, one girl, Alexxi Ayvaz, who had previously never eaten at a Taco Bell, described her experience as "amazing!"
