how we do it
TACOS FOR PEACE does not exist primarily to put money in our pockets
our main goal is to build peace by supporting dedicated peacebuilding projects. the main way we do this is by raising and donating funding through the sale of tacos
if a taco costs £1 to make but we sell it to you for £3, we collect the spare coins after everyone's been paid, reinvest a little in growing TACOS FOR PEACE and donate the rest to carefully selected peacebuilding projects
there's not much of a public conversation about peace: what it is, how we build it, who has it, who doesn't, etc.
TACOS FOR PEACE wants to change that by cultivating peace talk and especially by shining a light on peace projects that are:
led by locals
by supporting and championing these projects we hope to cultivate broader public support for peacebuilding in the long term
everybody eats. by eating great food together we reduce the significance of our differences
TACOS FOR PEACE hopes to one day provide a space in which:
peace can be enjoyed at the basic level of sharing tacos with friends & strangers
peace can be discussed, expressed, negotiated, and creatively built
peacebuilding from the grassroots can be supported by community solidarity extended across borders from the street
you can put anything in a tortilla and it becomes a taco - endless possibilities for creative combination
you can have one taco as a snack, or ten (10!) as a large meal, or any number in between
mexican food embraces its mestizo cultural heritage of mixed origins and diverse ingredients - fusion and togetherness is built in
everybody loves tacos!
the last ten years have brought a "gradual sustained decline in global levels of peacefulness"
direct violence is always most likely to impact the victims of structural violence - the poor, the disadvantaged, the discriminated against
everybody loves peace!
