Are you headed out to Taste of Tacoma this year (June 23-25 at Point Defiance Park)? Make sure to stop by this year’s brand new attraction, South Sound Bites! Not only will Tacoma restaurants be featured through 5-course entree/plate meals for only $16 (check out the menu here) but the event will also help support EFN! South Sound Bites attendees can make a monetary or canned food donation to EFN…and EFN will be there to accept these donations! Which means…you can volunteer with EFN at this year’s Taste of Tacoma!
