T-Town Tacos Logo

T-Town breakfast tacos will be in the court yard on Wednesday, October 5th, 2016. T-Town Tacos is a social enterprise of Youth Services of Tulsa in partnership with the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma funded by the Tulsa Area United Way.

We get up early every weekday to make and sell breakfast tacos in the Downtown Tulsa area from food carts affixed to trikes. Youth Services recognizes the crucial role employment plays in transitional youth achieving independence. The program is structured to emphasize the “soft-skills” of employment such as communication, reliability, and teamwork. We provide this training in the best way possible, by giving young people a job.

Available for $2.50.
