CONWAY, AR - There's no slowing down the Tacos 4 Life kitchen as dozens pack the Conway restaurant, but it's not just for the tacos.

"Every time someone comes in and buys a meal we donate a portion of those proceeds to pay for a kid's meal and it feeds a child in over 70 different countires" says Austin Samuelson.

Austin and his wife Ashton opened Tacos 4 Life earlier this week.

The couple has been cranking out the meals from 11 until 9 everyday.

They say it's a simple way to solve a big problem.

"You see the need, but then you also realize just the simple meal each day can make a world of difference in the child's life and start developing that sustainable change that needs to take place" says Samuelson.

Austin and Ashton will donate a meal for a meal. The couple hopes they can be an example and encourage others to do the same.

"I would like for, and Ashton would too, God willing, for there to be a bunch of restaurants for people to join with us because when you start getting more restaurants on board it goes from raising a few hundred meals here or a few hundred meals there, to hundreds of thousands of meals everyday" says Samuelson.

It's a way for a simple purchase to make a world of difference.
