Eat A Great Meal And Give To A Great Cause

Fort Worth’s newest nonprofit restaurant, Taste Community Restaurant, launches its Spring menu today.  Chef Jeff Williams and the team, consisting mostly of volunteers, encourage all Fort Worth residents to come taste and see a new approach to solving the issues of hunger in our community.

Taste’s new menu includes spring items such as croquettes with leek, sundried tomato, and bacon; bruschetta made with ricotta cheese, avocado, and sweet peas.  Honey-soy chicken lettuce wraps.  And a house-cured bacon and green tomato sandwich.  But the menu still has many fan favorites including our Carrot Curry Soup, South American Arepas, and our Traditional Burger with Texas-beef, house-processed cheddar cheese, house-made pickles, and our Tasty Sauce all served on a bun baked on site.

Taste Community Restaurant is the first project of the Taste Project organization designed to help feed, educate, and serve Tarrant County’s food insecure population, a total of 18.1 percent of Tarrant County’s overall community.

Taste’s solution is a fresh and healthy pay-what-you-can restaurant where everyone in the community, regardless of financial means, can enjoy a healthy, high quality meal, made from seasonal ingredients from the surrounding area. The menu has no prices. Patrons are simply asked to:

  1. pay what you can afford;
  2. pay what you would typically pay; or
  3. pay what you would typically pay, plus a little extra to help a neighbor in need.

To-date, Taste Community Restaurant has served over 5,000 meals; some guests are in need, and others want to help.  “This place blew me away.  Great environment, great people, and even better food; all wrapped up and there for an amazing cause,” said Trenton, a guest at Taste Community Restaurant.  Another guest, Bri, left a note that said, “…you’ve showed us that there are still good people in this world.  Thank you for being so nice to us and helping us get through another day without going hungry.”

Fort Worth and surrounding area residents can come show support for the underlying issue of food insecurity in our community.  Enjoy a wonderful meal.  And meet some amazing people.  Lunch is served from 11am – 2pm, Tuesdays thru Sundays.

Take look at our great spring menu.

This is my best year ever, and it can be yours too. When I turned 40, I thought it was the end of life as I knew it. When I turned 50, I knew it was the end. It was the end, the end of that year--nothing more and nothing less. I've retired, gone to another career, started a business, and have kept writing. I've taken classes including glass blowing, swing dancing and so much more. I'm making each year, my best year.
