Join Us for the Tastiest Night of the Year!


Sip. Savor. Connect.

Every year, the Volunteer Center of South Jersey celebrates Taste of Community, where the community connects with the finest eateries in the South Jersey region. Given the participation of premier restaurants, wineries and other food establishments, this has been one of the most anticipated events for over 20 years — the Volunteer Center’s signature fundraiser.

TASTE brings 300+ guests who come together to sip fine wine, savor flavors from 20-plus local eateries and connect with business partners and friends. The Taste Event is held at Auletto Caterers in Almonesson, NJ.

Restauranteurs continue to be the foundation in making this signature event, the Tastiest Ever! VCSJ invites South Jersey Eateries to join us for the 2024 Taste of Community Event. We continue to carry on our tradition, expanding our reach across South and Central New Jersey, making it more representative of the communities that we serve.

Taste of Community


The success of “Taste” means that more volunteers will be connected to quality opportunities with area non-profits. It is with the continued support of businesses in our community, that, VCSJ is able to fulfill its mission to promote volunteerism by connecting people with opportunities to serve, providing community agencies with resources and training, and building community partnerships to meet a number of local needs.
