Fort Worth’s nonprofit restaurant, Taste Community Restaurant, will launch its new Winter menu TODAY, Tuesday, December 11th—just as the organization celebrates its first year of open doors. Chef Jeff Williams and the team, consisting mostly of volunteers, encourage all Fort Worth residents to come taste and see a new approach to serving our community and making spirits bright this Christmas season.
Taste’s new menu includes new winter items such as beef barley soup, beet and orange salad, fennel chicken, vegetable curry, and roasted lamb. For burger fans, it includes a Kobe burger topped with Gorgonzola cheese, arugula, onion balsamic jam, and mayo on a toasted pretzel bun. And the menu brings back our winter fan favorite, carrot curry soup.
“While we hope our winter menu is delicious and inviting, it is only a small piece of what Taste Community Restaurant is all about,” said Chef Jeff Williams. “Our key ingredient is people. And we have the ability to change someone’s day by serving a meal, full of love, with dignity, in an environment that is uplifting and refreshing.”
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 16.6 percent of Tarrant County’s overall community.
Taste’s solution is a fresh and healthy pay-what-you-can restaurant where everyone in the community, regardless of financial means, can enjoy a healthy, high quality meal, made from seasonal ingredients from the surrounding area. The menu has no prices. Patrons are simply asked to:
- Pay what you can afford;
- Pay what you would typically pay; or
- Pay what you would typically pay, plus a little extra to help a neighbor in need.
To-date, Taste Community Restaurant has served over 25,000 meals; some guests are in need, and others want to help. “Here, it’s not about the ability to pay, “ says Ron, a guest at Taste. “It’s about your ability to enjoy.” Another guest wrote, ““This place has given me hope! It’s a wonderful feeling.”
Fort Worth and surrounding area residents can brighten someone’s day this Christmas while also enjoying a wonderful meal. Lunch is served from 11am – 2pm, Tuesdays thru Sundays.

Taste Project is 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. 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. Our first project, Taste Community Restaurant at 1200 South Main Street in Fort Worth, focuses on healthy, quality meals made from fresh ingredients. Our menu has no prices. This is a give and take concept. We ask guests 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.
