The Taste of Mansfield will have to wait.
Organizers have indefinitely postponed the annual event, which was set to take place Thursday evening.
“Through many conversations and much prayer, we have had to make the difficult decision to cancel Taste of Mansfield,” according to an email from Annalise Dingus, fund-raising and special events coordinator for the Mansfield Mission Center. “With safety being our No. 1 priority and COVID-19 cases increasing daily in Tarrant County, we were strongly advised to cancel until a later date for the safety of our community. We are very disappointed and saddened that we are having to cancel but feel it is the safest decision for everyone involved. We look forward to a bigger and better- safe event- in the future.”
The Taste of Mansfield is a fund-raiser for the Mansfield Mission Center, which includes a food pantry, free medical clinic and coaching for job seekers.
