Are you graduating high school this year? Good news! You can get a free taco and relive your late-night Taco Bell-run glory days, this time with diploma in hand. Taco Bell is giving out one free Doritos Locos taco to every high school graduate. All you have to do is flash high school identification and you’ll be served some sweet Tex-Mex fast food, gratis.
But this giveaway isn’t just about free food, although that’s certainly a big lure for 18-year-olds. This is part of the Taco Bell Foundation’s campaign to increase high school graduation rates across America. The campaign can be found on social media through the hashtag #RecognizePotential. The Taco Bell Foundation has spent $75 million over the past two decades helping to inspire teenagers through graduation encouragement and scholarships, according to Nation’s Restaurant News.
A group of 350,000 teenagers across the country have also been selected to participate in Taco Bell’s “Graduate for Más” challenge, which, in exchange for a promise to graduate high school, will connect participants with scholarships, as well as career opportunities with Taco Bell and other companies.
