Los Angeles-based psych-soul band Chicano Batman created a vegan taco in partnership with local restaurant chain HomeState with the mission of raising funds for organizations working to help communities in need. The Chicano Batman taco ($5) features soyrizo, potato, guacamole, salsa verde, and is served on an organic corn tortilla. All profits from the taco will benefit Los Angeles-based nonprofits Watts Empowerment Center (which helps low-income families and children living in the Watts Housing Projects) and No Us Without You (which works to feed undocumented workers, primarily those who work back-of-the-house positions at restaurants affected by COVID-19).
The Chicano Batman taco is part of HomeState’s “Band Taco” program which it started in 2015 to raise awareness and funding for community programs through partnerships with music bands. The Chicano Batman taco will be on the HomeState menu until the end of the year and anyone who donates $33 to either organization—which feeds a family of four for one week—receive a Chicano Batman poster designed by local illustrator Mallory Cohn.
On its permanent menu, HomeState also serves an Emo taco (refried black beans, guacamole, pickled red onions, and cabbage slaw) which can be ordered vegan on a corn tortilla.
