In a recent Facebook post, Taste Project announced the addition of Elizabeth McCarthy to its Board of Directors as the organization looks to expand in 2019.
“We are excited to continue expanding our board as we also continue expanding our reach in Fort Worth,” said Jeff Williams, Taste Project Founder and Board President. “Elizabeth has played a huge role in our 2018 success, and she will play an even greater role as a part of our Board of Directors.”
Elizabeth McCarthy lives in Fort Worth with her husband Bob. They have seven children, two of which are still at home; three daughters-in-law; two sons-in-law; and four grandchildren, plus one on the way. Elizabeth has volunteered more than 500 hours at Taste Community Restaurant since joining the Taste Bud Team in March of 2018. You can regularly find Liz in the kitchen at Taste introducing new volunteers to other volunteers and making sure they feel welcomed. She is incredibly approachable, fun, and engaging; and she makes hard work fun.
Taste Project has fed over 25,000 people through its pay-what-you-can lunch service at Taste Community Restaurant. And the organization looks to offer a pay-what-you-can breakfast in the first half of 2019. 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 (Feeding America).
