Student Free Lunch Program

We opened our doors in 2011 with the simple goal of offering the delicious, authentic Mexican food in the C-U area. For over 9 years, we are grateful and humbled by the support that you have shown to our business and families. From allowing us to be part of your daily lunch routine, special event or margarita stop, we thank you.

We made a decision that was one of the easiest choices to pursue in providing free lunches to the students of our community. We knew that the financial responsibility paled in comparison to our social responsibility as a local business. We wanted to be there for you when so many times, you've been there for us.

The overwhelming response and support through your kind and heartfelt works. You continually remind us why we believe Champaign - Urbana to be among the best communities in the nation. We have received numerous calls and emails looking for ways to support this endeavor. It takes a community as we've heard, but you're making it happen through your actions.

In order to facilitate and provide a way for those seeking to help, we are setting up this donation page. The use of these funds go further than most of us realize. We maintain a high level of integrity and responsibility to make sure that your support goes toward the costs used to maintain this program as long as we can.

As we now can expect, changes are happening daily. We have to stay positive and willing to understand the nature and severity of the reality that's in front of us. Maize wants to make sure that everyone is making the best choices for them and their family. For as long as we can, we will be there every step of the way.

Thank you so very much from our humbled and grateful team.
