LeBron James brings back Taco Tuesday as foundation feeds 1,300 during coronavirus pandemic

Taking to social media on Tuesday, Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James brought back one of his most famous traditions.

LOS ANGELES — Taco Tuesday is back. Not that it ever actually went anywhere. 

Still, it's been a while since Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James celebrated, at least publicly. 

James' Taco Tuesday chants were a weekly tradition — on social media, on the set of Space Jam 2, and even on the court. You can even get Taco Tuesday T-shirts with James' face on them on eBay.

Whether you're working from home, quarantining, or social distancing, you may have lost track of the days. But yesterday on his Instagram story, James reminded all of us at the best possible time.

"I know everybody's been thinking about what's been going on," he said, presumably referring to the coronavirus pandemic. "But just try and stay positive as much as possible."

Seriously, how good do those tacos look?

But it's not just LeBron who's getting in on the celebration. The LeBron James Family Foundation is keeping the Taco Tuesday tradition alive and well.

I Promise School teachers and staff, along with some volunteers set out yesterday to help families and businesses struggling due to Governor Mike DeWine's stay at home order, by putting together Taco Tuesday meals for I Promise families.

Altogether, the foundation was able to feed over 1,300 people yesterday. And they'll keep the tradition alive next week.

If you want to keep the celebration alive, some local taco spots are offering delivery and, pickup and car-side options.
