Fort Worth Cafe Serves it's 1,000th Brunch Guest

Taste Community Restaurant officially served its 1,000th brunch guest and is quickly becoming a favorite brunch spot in Fort Worth.  The organization launched its weekend pay-what-you-can brunch service on Sunday, April 21st.

Taste Community Restaurant’s pay-what-you-can brunch service is the first step in expanding its service hours.  The organizations efforts were initiated by seed funding from the United Way of Tarrant County’s Kernel Program.  In November 2018, Taste Project pitched for seed funding and was awarded $10,000 to expand it’s pay-what-you-can lunch program already in operation.

“We are thrilled to be able to serve and help even more people in our community,” says Jeff Williams, Taste Project Founder and Executive Director.  “A few extra hours each month may not sound like much; but, for folks in need it means greater access to healthy and nutritious food served with dignity.”
