A participant in the Zimmerman-Horowitz Independent Living Program at JF&CS

The Tasting benefits the Zimmerman-Horowitz Independent Living Program (Z-H ILP). The nonsectarian Z-H ILP is a program of Jewish Family & Career Services of Atlanta (JF&CS) and serves individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities — as well as their families and caregivers — so they can work, live and thrive in their communities. 

In its 22nd year, The Tasting is a longtime event benefiting the Zimmerman-Horowitz Independent Living Program (Z-H ILP). The nonsectarian Z-H ILP is a program of Jewish Family & Career Services of Atlanta (JF&CS) and serves individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities — as well as their families and caregivers — so they can work, live and thrive in their communities. 

This May, the iconic Atlanta event has shifted to a more covid-friendly fundraiser, The Tasting Restaurant Discount Card. From May 10-24, top Atlanta restaurants will be offering delicious deals to support The Tasting. The Tasting Card is available for $75 and offers a 20 percent discount at participating restaurants, caterers, and specialty food providers throughout metro Atlanta.

“Though we cannot gather together to sip savor and splurge as we have each year, we still need the community’s support for one of our critically important services,” said Melissa Dasilva, Managing Director of the Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Services at JF&CS. “The money raised from the sale of The Tasting Cards will benefit this best-in-class program where we offer high quality care, community inclusion and outings.”

The $75 payment is a donation to the program and is 100 percent tax deductible. Once purchased, The Tasting Card will be available digitally in an app where more than 50 participating caterers, restaurants and specialty food providers and their discounts will be listed.
