Taste Community Restaurant
1200 South Main Street
11 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Tuesday – Sunday
Tomorrow, Dec. 5, Fort Worth’s newest nonprofit restaurant — Taste Community Restaurant — will officially opens its doors to the public.
The restaurant is located in Fort Worth’s Near South Side at 1200 S. Main St. and is a pay-what-you-can establishment open for lunch from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m, Tuesday to Sunday.
According to a news release, 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 Project aims to create a sustainable solution to end hunger in Fort Worth.
The menu at Taste offers a healthy, high quality meal made from seasonal, local ingredients, but will show no prices.
Diners are asked to choose from three options:
— pay what you can afford;
— pay what you would typically pay; or
— pay what you would typically pay, plus a little extra.
“Really good food with good sized portions. Pay what you can idea is a wonderful concept,” said Pamela Peirce, in a news release. “One day you may be flush with cash and pay full price, the next you may be stone cold broke, doesn’t matter, you decide what you can pay and they accept it.”
Taste Community Restaurant Chef Jeff Williams encourages all Fort Worth residents to come show support for the underlying issue of food insecurity in our community.
Street parking is available in and around Taste Community Restaurant, which is also located along bus route #4.
Diners can check current wait times, or make a reservation, online at www.tasteproject.org.
“Our community has patiently waited for this day, and we are excited to welcome everyone home,” Williams said in the release. “This is your place.”
