Chipotle and Financially CLEAN Invite Brooklyn to Eat for Change Today

On Tuesday June 13th, Chipotle Mexican Grille in Brooklyn on Myrtle Ave is partnering with Financially CLEAN to make early financial education accessible to under resourced high school students. 50% of proceeds from sales today will go to fund programming --giving Taco Tuesday a whole new meaning. See complete details below.

Financially CLEAN has graduated close to 800 students in less than 2 years and with the help of organizations like Chipotle and the support of the community we hope to double that number next year.
