Revolution Taco (2015 Walnut) will raise funds for flood victims in Louisiana through the sale of a special new taco - designed by Chef Chef Carolyn Nguyen, who was born and raised there.
Starting today, through Sunday, September 11th, Revolution Taco will offer the Fried Oyster PoBoy Taco, that features fried oysters, Cajun aioli, tomato, onion, lettuce, pickles and Tabasco sauce.
"I grew up in Louisiana for almost all of my childhood," said Nguyen. "Deep down it will always be home for me. When Hurricane Katrina hit, I felt helpless. With more resources on our hands now, I want to lend a hand, reach a bigger audience and make more of an impact."
The Fried Oyster PoBoy will sell for 2 for $10 or 3 for $13.50. All proceeds will be donated to the Disaster Relief Fund established by the Associated Professional Educators of Louisiana.
"It is important for restaurants and/or any business to give back. Our customers support us daily by coming in the restaurant so we have a duty to support the communities in need," Nguyen added. "It may not affect our customers directly but they may have friends or family that were affected. We are all one big community."
The Disaster Relief Fund was established by the Associated Professional Educators of Louisiana (501c3 non-profit) to support teachers who have lost their classroom materials during this year’s horrific flooding. The fund gives 100% of the donations directly to Louisiana teachers. Their website features a special application process for those in need of aid, at http://www.apeleducators.org/page/DisasterRelief
