WEEKEND PREVIEW: Taste of White Center on Saturday

So far almost 30 restaurants in White Center and South Delridge are ready to serve up tasty bites on Saturday during the first-ever Taste of White Center.

All you have to do is buy $5 tickets, each good for a special menu item at participating restaurants, from shave ice to smoked chicken, pho to pizza, banh mi to burgers, roasted corn to congee, and much more – and then wander around to those venues to start chowing down. The list of participating establishments is here. The event is happening 11 am-4 pm Saturday; during that time, the $5 tickets – benefiting the White Center Food Bank – will be on sale at three locations: the corner of 16th/98th, Mac’s Triangle Pub (Delridge/16th/Roxbury), and Patrick’s Bakery & Café (10003 15th SW),

    What exactly is this? You pay $5.00 but you go to restaurant and order food and pay for it at normal price. So the food bank gets your $5.00 plus does it also get money from the restaurant/ fast food place  you go to?  I don’t see the special menu on the website, apparently only certain items count towards the food bank things you can order so that the food bank gets a a small amount of money at each participating restaurant? I have looked at a couple of the places listed but don’t see special food bank tasting of white center menu, it would be nice to know ahead of time.

      Yes, I have asked WCFB for a list of the menu items – they have some examples in an animated graphic on Instagram but that doesn’t work for my purposes.
      It works this way:
      You buy one or more $5 tickets, You go to a participating venue and redeem your ticket for the special menu item.

    So, am I correct to assume each $5.00 ticket is for a sample offering from one restaurant?I’ve never done anything like this before, but would like to help the WCFB. Thanks.
