Katy Taste Fest serving fun and food for a good cause at 2017 festival

Festival’s charity partners include Katy Care, Krause Children’s Center, Helping Kids Ministry, and more

Katy Taste Fest is set to serve up good food for a good cause. The festival is an event for foodies to experience fare from Katy’s diverse restaurant scene. Emphasis is on fun for the whole family with a variety of local restaurants, cooking demonstrations, a large kids zone, a dessert oasis, live entertainment, and a silent auction. The festival will debut at Villagio Town Center on March 4, 2017. Katy Taste Fest has partnered with several nonprofits that focus on abused, neglected, and abandoned children.

Celebrating food, having fun, and giving back to the community are the primary goals for Katy Taste Fest,” said Cyril Thomas, the festival organizer. “The delectable food, cooking classes, and live entertainment are certainly vital pieces to the food festival, but partnering with local charities that focus on vulnerable children is what is important to me. We can make a difference celebrating what we enjoy – food, drinks, and fun. “

Katy Taste Fest supports several Katy non-profit groups, including Katy Cares, Helping Kids Ministry, Krause Children’s Center, and Armor of Hope Foundation. All proceeds from Katy Taste Fest will benefit Katy nonprofits that help vulnerable children. “We believe that Katy Taste Fest’s focus on philanthropy is an opportunity for the community to rally for our neighbors in need, both locally and globally, and we’re thrilled to be onboard as a charity partner this year,” said Allison Stark, President and CEO of Katy Cares.
