Final ‘Free Tacos’ event this Friday for those in need

Just announced:

It’s Taco Friday again! Tacos in the park will be offered to the White Center Community for a final time, this Friday, August 9, 2013 at Noon, with a focus on reaching those who are experiencing homelessness or struggling to make ends meet.

Taco Time Northwest continues to generously provide delicious tacos for the meal, while the outreach is supported by The White Center Homeless Summit community group, The Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission, a group of local churches, businesses, and the White Center Chamber of Commerce.

Our Second Friday of the Month effort continues to average well over 40 participants, serving over 100 tacos during the 90 minute event. White Center business owners are encouraged to send people our way and let them know about the free lunch this Friday. Free lunch will be provided across the street from Steve Cox Park (1327 SW 102nd) in front of the Body of Christ Church on Friday August 9th, from 12pm – 1:30pm.

  1. …Taco Time is not as good as Taco Bell, maybe that’s why they have to give it away.

  2. Taco Time provides exceptional, high quality food, and has been a very generous corporate supporter of our efforts at outreach to the homeless community in White Center. To those who do not know, Daisy, who has commented above, is one of our White Center voices that tends to go from one comment site to another ridiculing others and providing shallow observation about events or activities in White Center. Those of us who volunteered and did more than our share of outreach to this complex homeless community are thankful for companies like Taco Time. And we also got to eat their excellent tacos as we shared this great food with our homeless neighbors. Daisy, if you like Taco Bell so well, go negotiate with Taco Bell and get them to donate food once a month for 8 months and help us to continue providing this luncheon effort.

  3. As a member of the community, I would like to applaud Taco Time for providing this service to our community. I personally am a fan of the Taco Time Crispy Burritos myself. And I, too, challenge Daisy to reach out to Taco Bell to get them to invest similarly n our community!

  4. ….It’s just a matter of taste, as long as it’s free, but I still enjoy Taco Bell, it just tastes better. I would like to see seniors and disabled helped who are residents, a lot of these homeless are not from our area, most have issues that should be addressed by professionals, some have criminal records.
