Las Fuentes - Fighting Hunger with Photos of Tacos

Word cloud compiled from GiftAMeal photos for Las Fuentes

"Yummy," "delicious," "great," and "favorite" are all words that have been used to describe the food at Las Fuentes Mexican Restaurant in Oakville in photo captions on the GiftAMeal app. Other words like "friendly," "service," "happy," and "enjoying" speak to the feelings that are experienced while at Las Fuentes.

Las Fuentes meaning "fountains" in Spanish has been exactly that to the people in the St. Louis area, a fountain and source of delicious Tex-Mex food for over 15 years. Not only is the food affordable and authentic but Las Fuentes consistently has great service and good vibes. If unlimited chips and salsa, fried tacos, large margaritas, daily food/drink specials, and the warm hospitality are not enough to keep you coming back, Las Fuentes' food is even more special in a unique way.

While Las Fuentes' food is freshly prepared and delicious, it also has the power to feed someone else. By simply ordering food like you normally would, you have the potential to feed someone else with a meal as well. How is this possible?

Las Fuentes is partnered with GiftAMeal which allows users to take a picture of their food and in doing so, help provide a meal to someone in need. Whenever a picture is taken, GiftAMeal makes a donation to a local food bank (Operation Food Search in St. Louis) which helps cover the cost of getting 1.2 pounds of food (1 meal) to local food pantries and into the hands of those in need.

Since partnering with GiftAMeal, Las Fuentes has been able to donate over 700 meals which go to feeding the hungry locally. Such a significant impact to the community would not be possible without the generous spirit that Las Fuentes embodies.

Las Fuentes offers the privilege to take part in giving back to those around us, the gift of a meal. Las Fuentes truly is food for all people, for those enjoying it and for our neighbors in need.

Las Fuentes es para los gentes.
