They say there is no free lunch, but this week teachers from all across Liberty County were treated to a free Mexican buffet provided by El Burrito restaurants in Liberty and Cleveland. All totaled, more than 300 teachers participated.

On Wednesday, Aug. 14, an estimated 60-80 teachers took part in a buffet-style dinner at the Liberty location. The following day, 230 educators from Tarkington ISD were treated to lunch at the 18th Annual TISD Teachers Luncheon hosted by Hi-Way Tabernacle Church.

Blake Burton, Wendy Medina and Justin Strader greeted teachers at El Burrito Restaurant in Liberty at a “Welcome Back Teachers Buffet” on Aug. 14. All teachers in Liberty County were offered a free meal by El Burrito. Roughly 80 teachers participated at the Liberty location.

Rev. Charles Stoker, pastor of Hi-Way Tabernacle Church, treated the Tarkington teachers like stars as they showed up for lunch. A red carpet was laid out and teachers entered through a “VIP” entrance. The luncheon at Hi-Way Tabernacle was suspended last year while the church continued to make post-Hurricane Harvey repairs.
