"The only time to eat diet food is while you’re waiting for the steak to cook."- Julia Child

With the spring season coming up I fully intend on going to the food truck park as much as I can! There is a new park that just opened up called Clearfork Food Park and it’s unfortunately  close to work! It’s super spacious and right along the Trinity River, and has a full bar, not to mention several different food trucks. They have big screen TV’s so it’s the perfect place to kick back, watch the game, try some new food and grab a drink.

A few weeks ago, Josh and I tried a truck called First Bite. I had been stalking following it for a while on Facebook because I knew I wanted to try their food. Carne Asada is what they are known for and it’s in almost every thing on their menu (they also have a nuts looking vegetable flat melt sandwich, for all the vegetarians out there). Lets face it, I love steak! Put it in a street taco, or a spring roll, or loaded on top of some french fries, I’m all over that! I got their Street Tacos (taqueria style corn tortillas, carne asada, cilantro, chopped white onion, avosauce, and lime) with a side of cilantro rice and their spring rolls (spring roll filled with juicey carne asada, black beans, corn, red onion, cilantro, and red bell pepper all infused with their cilantro lime dressing, deep fried and served with avosauce.) Both were absolutely delicious!!

So aside from their food being spectacular, the owner and the people working there are super nice! I’ve been so some trucks where the food was OK, but the people serving weren’t the greatest.

But the real reason I wanted everyone to know about this truck is because of what they are doing for the community! The headline on their webpage says

IF EVERYONE GAVE A LITTLE,
NO ONE WOULD GO HUNGRY. YOUR FIRST BITE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
So what are they doing about it?? Well a portion of every sale they get goes to stocking up their pantry and going around to the homeless around the Fort Worth area! The pick an area that has a lot of homeless and serve them a warm meal!  How awesome is that!So, go hit up their Facebook page and make sure to head out to the parks when they are there!

I have a lot of blogs to catch up on, last semester was a nightmare and I had zero time to do anything, so hopefully this semester will be better. Stay tuned for my next blog about this amazing little winery Josh and I went to over this past weekend for dinner. It literally blew our minds how good it was!
THIS JOURNEY BEGAN BECAUSE KAMI HAD A PASSION IN HER HEART TO DO WHAT SHE COULD TO FEED THE HUNGRY IN HER COMMUNITY. A NUDGE CONTINUED AS A PASSION WAS BIRTHED, ASKING THE QUESTION, “WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF EVERYONE GAVE UP THEIR FIRST BITE OF EVERY MEAL? WHAT IF WE USED THOSE “FIRST BITES” TO FEED THE LESS FORTUNATE?”
THE FIRST BITE GOURMET IS A GOURMET FOOD TRUCK/CATERING COMPANY THAT WILL DONATE A “FIRST BITE” PORTION OF EVERY MEAL PURCHASED TO FEED OUR HUNGRY NEIGHBORS. WE WILL GIVE UP OUR “FIRST BITE”, WE WON’T MISS IT, PEOPLE WILL BE FED.


It gets me thinking about what can I do to make a difference in the community? If anyone has any ideas of things around here that I can get involved in, let me know! Until then, I’m gonna keep supporting the First Bites cause!

Until next time,

You can chew on that
