Taste Addison has been celebrating the community’s culinary leaders for decades, helping to elevate Addison’s reputation as one of Texas’s best night out destinations. This Friday, April, 26, Taste Addison kicks off their annual event season by honoring culinary leaders of tomorrow – all while raising funds for a great cause. Taste on the Tarmac, an elevated tasting happy hour experience, combines the culinary arts and community,  from 5:30 – 9 p.m. at the beautiful new Galaxy FBO at Addison Airport. Guests will enjoy fabulous bites and sips while benefiting the Metrocrest Services Sack Summer Hunger Program. The event is presented by Oncor.

The stars of this celebration will be the CFBISD high school culinary arts students who are competing by making their best Taste Bite. A fun twist to the competition --- 50% of the ingredients used in creating the Taste Bite must be items that are typically donated to a food pantry.

Guests attending Taste on the Tarmac will vote to select the People’s Choice Award. Top honors will be voted on by the Mayors of the Metrocrest region, including Addison Mayor Bruce Arfsten, Farmers Branch Mayor Terry Lynne, Carrollton Mayor Steve Babick and Coppell Mayor Wes Mays. The winning entry will have the opportunity to present their Taste Bite at Taste Addison, May 31 – June 2 in Addison Circle Park. Recipes for all of the entries will be available at Metrocrest Services Food Pantry during the summer months.

In addition to the student prepared bites, Chamberlain’s Steak & Fish  will provide an array of tasty bites and a paired beverage. Tickets for the networking event are $125 per person and can be purchased here:

Metrocrest Services specializes in helping individuals, families, and seniors navigate through crisis situations and work to stabilize their lives for a brighter future. Their Sack Summer Hunger program provides healthy, easy-to-prepare breakfast, lunch, and snacks for children who qualify for free or reduced meals during the school year. During the summer, weekly meal bags with a combination of pantry items and fresh foods are distributed to students’ homes by a dedicated corps of church partners and Metrocrest Services volunteers. Metrocrest Services will also be a beneficiary of donations at Taste Addison.

“We are thrilled to partner with the Town of Addison to address the needs facing students who depend upon assistance to receive healthy food when school is not in session,” said Tracy Eubanks, CEO of Metrocrest Services. “These partnerships make possible our mission of helping families stabilize their lives for a brighter future.”
