Completed homework equals free food

Submitted By Tacos Uruapan

Tacos Uruapan, a family owned Mexican restaurant in Hayward, has partnered with Treeview/Bidwell Elementary School to launch the Burrito Genius program. The Solorio family has a history of supporting the community in Hayward, and decided to expand their efforts by developing a program that targets students and their families.

The Burrito Genius program was created to incentivize homework completion. It allows students to earn reward cards redeemable for free food. The program was launched at Treeview/Bidwell Elementary School in April 2012. More than 300 students received Burrito Genius rewards through the first month of the program. Treeview/Bidwell will re-launch the program at the beginning of the 2012-2013 school year.

Tacos Uruapan is interested in expanding the program throughout the school district and invites interested parents and school officials to contact Tony Solorio at tacosuruapan@gmail.com for more information.

Tacos Uruapan is located at 29950 Huntwood Avenue in Hayward, and can be found online at www.tacosuruapan.net.
