Today, we’ve been raising #GivingTuesday funds for meals for our Vida students – and we’d like to share a taste of Guatemala with you. If you watched the #NoHungryKids Video this morning, you would have seen our kids enjoying platefuls of “Tactic Tacos”
The recipe for “Tactic Tacos” is a favorite in our schools and we’ve shared it below – scaled down to family size
Impact Ministries schools start each day with a meal – because kids with full tummies simply learn better, and because some of our students don’t get regular meals at home. Can you believe we can feed our kids for an average of 40¢ a meal?
Today, for #GivingTuesday, we’re running our #NoHungryKids campaign. How many meals will you provide?
4 cloves of garlic
4 stalks of celery
1 chili pepper
1 large onion
4 large carrots
1 lb ground beef
salt & pepper
1/2 c – 1 c beef stock (or 1-2 tsp of beef bullion dissolved in water)
thyme & a couple of bay leaves
Mince the garlic and finely chop up the celery, chili pepper and onion. Finely grate the carrots, melding together the carrot juice with the grated carrots.
Put a couple of teaspoons of vegetable oil in a pan. Once it heats up, start by adding the minced garlic.
Shortly after, add the chopped celery, chili pepper and onion.
When the veggies are cooked, add the ground beef. Season it with salt and pepper and cook until browned.
After this, stir in your grated carrots, and add your beef stock, thyme and bay leaves. Cover this and leave it to simmer until the carrots are tender. (Note that the liquid should be cooked off prior to serving)
Serve on top of tacos and garnish with a granulated dry cheese like Parmesan cheese.
Don’t forget to donate to our #NoHungryKids campaign, so that we can continue serving nutritious meals like this to our students! And hey – if you try out our Tactic Tacos, be sure to share a photo and hashtag it #NoHungryKids!
You’re scouting the sales for #BlackFriday and strategizing for #CyberMonday . . . but have you planned for #GivingTuesday?
#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving back – a chance to join with others around the world to make an impact and to kick off your Christmas giving season.
Save the Date, because this year on Tuesday, November 28th, Impact Ministries has a #NoHungryKids goal of providing 40,000 meals for Vida students – and we need your help to reach it!
In Guatemala, many families struggle to put food on the table. The meal our children get at school might be the only one they get all day.
It only takes 40¢ to provide a meal to a Vida student. And on #GivingTuesday, your donation will be DOUBLED. That means $10 provides 50 meals! Will you give hope to children in Guatemala in the form of hot, nutritious meals? How many meals will you give?
