The 22nd Annual Taste of Phoenixville

Written by Edwin Malet

A culinary extravaganza supporting Good Samaritan Services

The restaurants of Phoenixville along with Good Samaritan Services — known as Good Sam — are excited to announce the return of the 22nd annual Taste of Phoenixville on Thursday, January 18. This year’s event promises to unite the community once again with a night of culinary delights, live music and a spirit of generosity. Bid on silent auction packages, try your luck in a raffle, enjoy live music and show off your best moves on the dance floor. And of course, sample food and drink from over 20 fabulous local dining destinations.

Every dollar raised at The Taste contributes to Good Sam’s mission of providing housing, personal development resources, rental assistance, compassionate case management and counseling to individuals and families facing homelessness and poverty. The Taste plays a pivotal role in funding these programs, with last year’s event raising over $135,000. Since 2001, Good Sam has grown from a single shelter to serving over 600 individuals and families annually.

Good Sam compassionately responds to homelessness and poverty through its unique and personalized approach. Serving over 600 men, women and children annually across Lancaster and Chester Counties, their vision is to serve all who may be otherwise overlooked. Good Sam’s comprehensive program allows the organization to serve those experiencing homelessness, those who are at risk of losing their own housing and all levels of housing insecurity in between.

Together, you can make a meaningful difference in the lives of our neighbors in need. Rally your friends, bring your appetite and join the fun for an evening of unparalleled taste, community and generosity. Eat well and do good.
