Family Promise of Salem County is sponsoring a “Taste of South Jersey” fundraiser to fund our mission to help homeless families regain their independence.

The Taste of South Jersey 2014". Sample the best food in Salem County. 20 different Vendors will be there representing local restaurants and caterers.

How does it work?

About 20+ restaurants from Salem County and beyond commit to set up food sampling tables the night of event. Restaurant vendors can include caterers, family restaurants, fine food restaurants, pizza /hoagie shops, ice cream vendors, diners, Chinese or Italian restaurants.

Family Promise of Salem County will sell tickets for $40 each and patrons will have the chance to sample foods from any table. The Riverview Inn can accommodate up to 500 people in their entire restaurant, so our goal is to sell 500 tickets before the event. Pre-sold tickets will receive a sheet of raffle tickets ($5 value). We have use of the entire restaurant for food sampling tables, dining and a basket auction.

As a restaurant vendor, you will provide bite-size samples of one or two of your signatures dishes --appetizer, soup, entrée, dessert or snack. (You decide which category your dish falls into.) Prepare samples for 400 people plus extra because people will come back for seconds. Keep in mind; you will be serving already prepared food from your table using your own chafing dishes or ice trays.  Bring your own paper plates, disposable mini bowls or cups from which to serve your food. Access to the Riverview Inn’s kitchen is for refrigerating food safely or getting water is available, but not for preparing food.

Why should your businesses participate?

  • Direct exposure of your business to potential customers the night of the event.
  • A chance to distribute your business cards or flyers promoting your restaurant from your table.
  • A free full page black & white ad in our program booklet. (You provide the camera ready black & white ad)

  • Patrons can vote for their favorite appetizer, soup, entrée, dessert or snack on a ballot on the back page of the program booklet. The “Best of” winners will be announced that night and names will be submitted to South Jersey Times newspaper in a news release afterwards.
