The Offspring provide 400 school lunches

Punk band partners with Chronic Tacos and Gringo Bandito to donate school lunches

In a continued effort to do good and support their local community during the COVID-19 pandemic, punk rock band and Orange County natives The Offspring partnered this week with Mexican grill Chronic Tacos and Gringo Bandito — founded by The Offspring lead singer, Dexter Holland — to serve lunch to qualified local students outside Perry Elementary School in Huntington Beach, as school-sponsored lunch services went on hiatus for Spring Break this week. Together, they supplied over 400 meals, including a small burrito, chips, salsa and bottled water, out of the popular Chronic Tacos Food Truck.

The food truck was stationed in the school’s parking lot, where The Offspring, Chronic Tacos employees and members of the Huntington Beach School District helped hand out lunches to families of students who rely on school-supplemental meals.

Holland founded Gringo Bandito over ten years ago as a hobby. The responses to this new hot sauce were so overwhelming among family and friends that Holland decided to put it out commercially. After several years and almost a million bottles later, Gringo Bandito hot sauce has garnered a worldwide audience and a loyal following. Gringo Bandito is now sold in Australia, Japan, Canada, Finland, Germany, Belgium, Hungary and coast to coast in the US and can be found in the Top 10 on‘s highest customer rated hot sauces amongst 5000+ other products.
