“Taste of Tri-Lakes Cares” combines good food with inter-active games designed to highlight the various programs and services provided by Tri-Lakes Cares in northern El Paso County. The event is modeled after the Food Network’s television show “Chopped”—but there is no actual judging, and certainly no eliminations!

Chefs from local restaurants are invited to participate, receiving a basket of items typically found in either our food pantry or our Help Yourself market about a week prior to the event. These items are foods which are available to our clients on a regular basis. The chefs use these ingredients (and any additions they may choose to add) to create a single dish for sampling at the event. The goal is to showcase how ordinary items from a standard food pantry with donated food can be transformed into tasty and unusual dishes.

Playing “pin the Band-aid on the patient’s thumb” – highlighting the Neighborhood Nurse Center

While you are sampling the various food offerings, you are invited to play games and you will learn about Tri-Lakes Cares, the programs and services we provide, and even the state of poverty in the local area. When you arrive, you will receive a “passport” and as you play the games, your passport will be stamped.

When leaving, drop your completed passport in the box to participate in drawings for restaurant gift cards and other prizes.
