Although Valentine’s Day is still a month away, it’s not too early to plan your special date! Our featured community event for this month will provide the perfect Valentine’s day dinner for you and your significant other, with the added benefit of helping those in need among our local community.
The ‘Taste the Love’ Valentines Dinner and Fundraiser is being hosted by Taste Project: a 501(c)3 non-profit established to feed, educate, and serve our community so they may “…taste and see the Lord is good.”(Psalm 34:8). The romantic dinner will be on Valentine’s Day at Taste Community Restaurant in Fort Worth (1200 South Main Street, Fort Worth, TX 76104). All sales will benefit Taste Project and the cause to end hunger for those struggling in our community.
Reservations are currently available between 6:30 pm and 7:00 pm for Friday, February 14th. Tickets are $300 per couple. The Valentine’s Dinner for Two menu has not been posted yet, but last year’s menu included:
Bruschetta – whipped Ricotta w/ honey and hazelnut.
Crab and Avocado Salad with an orange and vanilla Espuma.
Porterhouse Steak for Two
Served with fingerling potatoes and asparagus.

Tickets must be purchased in advance, and refunds can be provided up to 7 days prior to the event.
About the Taste Project organization (via www.tasteproject.org)
Taste Project is a 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.
Jeff Williams, the founder of Taste Project, believes everyone should have access to healthy nutritional food, and supports the vision to see our local community heed the call to battle and stand on the front lines against hunger.
The organization’s non-profit restaurant focuses on healthy, quality meals made from fresh ingredients. The menu has no prices; it is a give-and-take concept. They simply ask customers to do one of the following:
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.
This set up allows customers to freely give to the cause of helping those in need without any pressure or strings attached. What a great way to contribute to the community!
