Homeless Children’s Playtime Project

In addition to supporting 13 Southern charities that focus on meeting the basic needs of our communities, Taste of the South will also support a D.C.-based charity as a way to give back to our adopted hometown. This year’s selection is Homeless Children’s Playtime Project, a volunteer organization whose mission is to cultivate resilience in children experiencing family homelessness by providing transformative play experiences. Playtime Project brings a safe play space to homeless shelters around the city, creating ongoing play opportunities that nurture healthy development and connect families with support services.
