The Full Story
Taste Project is a 501(c)3 non-profit established simply to feed people one community at a time. One of every six Americans faces the reality that they may not be able to provide for their next meal. There are programs in place that help; however, in Tarrant County, 36 percent of this food insecure population live above the poverty level and receive no government help.
Our mission is to feed, educate, and serve our community so they may “…taste and see the Lord is good.” Psalm 34:8. We believe everyone should have access to healthy nutritional food. Our vision is to see our community become the solution to the challenges our community faces as it relates to hunger.
We fulfill our mission through various programs centered around Taste Community Restaurant, a full service restaurant where everyone is welcome regardless of means. Our programs include:
Pay-what-you-can Breakfast, Lunch, and Brunch
Culinary Apprenticeship Program
Urban Farm Partnership
Taste Community Restaurant exists in the city of Fort Worth's largest food dessert where access to affordable fresh food is limited. Our menu is a mix of healthy and hearty meals to accommodate the foodies in the neighborhood while also remembering this may be the only meal some of our guests eat all day.
Taste Community Garden and our Urban Farm Partnership with Opal's Farm, allow us to engage our community to grow herbs, fruits, and vegetables for the restaurant while also educating our community about growing.
Community gardens and urban farms are sprouting across the country. And while our community garden and farm partnership programs don't replace the need for grocery stores and food banks; it does provide another innovative community-centric option.
If you like being outdoors or like being in the kitchen, our Kitchen/Farm and Garden Team is a perfect match for you!
