If you don't know anyone who hasn't taken offense to the often deliberate, but sometimes accidental adoption of a your culture, then I suggest you diversify your circle a little bit more. Or don't, I couldn't possibly care less.
There isn't a distinct line drawn for this. Have a look at wiki for a general definition. The two stories cited by the OP were by organizations that have nothing to do with the Mexican culture, therefore to advertise it as such is appropriation. Serve whatever food you like (as they were allowed to in the end), but don't treat culture as decoration for a fund raiser.
