The snow is but a memory. Electricity has, for the most part, been restored. Now, people are grappling with the domino effect of problems caused by last week’s weather emergency. For some, essential utilities like potable water are still needed. Whether it’s lack of clean water or just merely digging themselves out of storm damages, people still need help.

Enter the good folks at Staff Meal. The nonprofit sprung into action last week and worked with local restaurants to help feed Dallasites. And they’re back at it again. This time Staff Meal has joined forces with Dallas-based dating app, Match, to pay taco joints to provide food to those who need it.

From Fort Worth to McKinney and down in DeSoto, too, Taco Tuesday takes on a philanthropic bent today. Anyone that needs a meal can pick one up for free—ask for the “Staff Meal Special.”
