Tacolicious School Project

Since 2012, Tacolicious has made public education its priority, investing back into the Bay Area community through the Tacolicious School Project. For Tacolicious owners Joe Hargrave and Sara Deseran, this mission is personal. Since the start, their children have attended San Francisco public schools (they are currently at James Lick and Mission High), thus Joe and Sara are well aware of how much financial assistance public schools here need.

From September to May, each of our San Francisco Tacolicious locations pairs up with a neighboring public school, donating 15 percent of a month’s worth of Monday’s proceeds to it. We encourage both schools and the outside community to participate. Through this program, Tacolicious has an annual alliance with 27 public schools. Help us reach our goal to hit the $1 million mark this year!
