Help #BlazeAPath for Green Team Youth
by Megan Davis
I have worked at Groundwork Dallas for two years now and it has been a truly inspiring experience. We provide environmental education, job training, and recreational skills development to urban youth here in Dallas. Many of these young people have not spent significant amounts of time outdoors before getting involved in our Green Team. We are raising funds to take youth on two conservation trips to Big Bend Ranch State Park next year. Youth will work on conservation projects at the park, camp out under the stars, and try activities like rappelling and backpacking. The teens in our program come back from these experiences excited to get involved in environmental work here at home. Please support this work by donating to my fundraising page. I will PERSONALLY match up to the first $250 I raise!

Taste with Julie
by Julie Williams
I am super passionate about this place, and not just because my husband is the chef. God gave Jeff a vision for this incredible place; but the Lord also has a purpose for me.

I had always felt out of place in every job I've had; but this one is different. Every day I walk through the doors at Taste and God reminds me that I'm the one He's been looking for. And if the Lord does that for me, I know He is doing it for so many others that walk through the doors at Taste Community Restaurant.

Will you join me in making people feel loved and wanted at Taste Community Restaurant? It may sound as simple as a meal, but it's so much more.

Taste with Tim
by Timothy Watts
I have been proud of being a part of this wonderful mission and ministry for many years. I look back to the year we started demolition on our building; how we were creating a blank canvas that we hoped we could use to paint a picture that inspires hope, love, and peace to the food insecure of Tarrant County. A warm place to enjoy community and a wonderful meal, without any condemnation or judgement. Now I look at Taste Community Restaurant and am in awe how God has used a vision from my friend Jeff to bless so many in the community!
However, the painting is not finished, and we still need your support. Will you join me in making people feel loved and wanted at Taste Community Restaurant? It may sound as simple as a meal, but it's so much more. God bless!

Taste with Judith
by Judith Aboufares
A menu with no prices!!!! Wait! Can't be! Taste is a project my sister and brother in law have put together so that everyone can "taste and see that the Lord is good." It's simple, come, sit, order, eat and pay what you can. For some that means nothing, for some it's what they normally pay and for others it's a bit extra. The good news is it all pans out and everyone eats, no one knows who's in need and who is supporting a neighbor.

Taste with Liz
by Elizabeth McCarthy
18 months ago, I was encouraged to visit a new restaurant in Fort Worth called Taste Community Restaurant. I met my friend Cindy there and what happened next quite literally changed my life.

Taste Project is a "pay-as-you-are-able" restaurant. This means that if you are unable to pay anything, you are welcome to come in and eat. It means that if you have a small amount you can contribute, you are welcome to come in and eat. It means if you are able to pay a comparable amount to other local eateries, you are welcome to come in and eat. It also means, if you are able to pay the comparable amount, plus a little more, you are welcome to come in and eat.

Everyone is welcome.

Every. Single. Solitary. Person.

Every color. Every age. Every outfit. Every language. Every bank account.

It must be an incredible dance to make this type of restaurant work. And what a challenging word to define - working - in these terms.

It is necessary to locate yourself in such a place that people who are able to "pay-a-little-more" are willing to show up. You then also have to be in a place where people who are unable to pay, can arrive via walking. That is a fascinating intersection.

Next, it must be clean. And by clean I mean spotless. Pardon my stereotyping, but it is not a stretch to think that the average person likely wonders … "is it full of dirty people?" No. No, it is not full of dirty people. And in fact, it is by far the cleanest restaurant where I have eaten in some time.

But what kind of food is it? Is it cheap? Is it a deli? Why, no. The food is actually impressive. Great detail is taken in the presentation. There is no rush to eat. All who enter are paid attention to. All who enter receive the same level of service. The food in this restaurant rivals, and in all honesty, actively exceeds others within its neighborhood elite.

So, what is the catch? This is where the life changing part started.

I had lunch there with Cindy, and left uncomfortable. In my life, I strive to feed. Hours upon hours are spent planning, buying, prepping, cooking, serving. I left with a pebble in my shoe about how I might possibly fit into this puzzle. I even filled out the form and was thrilled to see my children were welcome to serve as well.

A week passed, and I met my buddy Alonso there, who is the ED of our non-profit, Leg Up. Again, I left uncomfortable. There is more you can contribute, Elizabeth, get busy.

And then, a few days later Cindy sent me a text … "Taste needs volunteers desperately this week if you can fit it in …"

If I can fit it in.

"Taste and see that the Lord is good. How blessed is the one who takes shelter in Him!" Psalm 34:8

So we fit it in. My 11 and 14-year-old showed up ready to work and experienced the most incredible feeling of giving any of us has ever felt. We greeted, we made drinks, we served drinks, we served food, we bussed tables, we wrapped silverware. But the thing that was the most incredible was the greeting.

"What's the catch?" came the inquiry at the door.

"There's no catch" I would reply.

"There must be a catch."

"You are welcome here. This restaurant is run as a pay-as-you-are-able. Where there is abundance, we will share. We welcome you to taste and see that the Lord is good …"

Utter and complete silence and staring.

"Please come in, and let our hostess seat you."

What followed for the lovely, elderly, down on their luck couple was nothing short of miraculous. A long, leisurely, safe, nutritious meal. Servers who volunteered their time to serve others. Dishwashers who gladly washed a thousand dishes to help it all run like clockwork. A series of chefs who care deeply for the Lord and for their calling to feed. As they left, some time later, there were not enough words to express the depth of their gratitude.

Incredible. In every possible way.

Celebrate with Taste
by Susan Dodson
When I first visited Taste with my sisters, I had no idea what I was walking into. Honestly, I thought we would be eating "soup kitchen" food with a purpose. Little did I know, the fabulousness of Taste Community! I could immediately tell that every person who walked through the door was served an amazingly tasty meal with love, dignity, and respect whether they could pay for their meal or not. As I began to serve there, I saw the evidence of God's Grace as I witnessed a community come together to empower, equip and care for each other.

I haven't been able to serve at Taste lately, but I continue to support them in any way possible. And because I share my birthday with NTGD I'd be honored if you'd help me celebrate by giving a little to Taste today. If you aren't able to give, please make it a point to visit them and Taste and See for yourself! You will not be disappointed.
