Fenway Community Development Corporation and Samuels & Associates partnered to revive the Taste of The Fenway in 2016. Our goal for this neighborhood event is to showcase and share the best of The Fenway, and help businesses, residents, and institutions thrive together! Taste of The Fenway supports the programs and services of Fenway CDC.
Fenway CDC is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Every year, Fenway CDC serves over 2,500 low and moderate-income residents by helping them access affordable housing, job skills training, employment, social services, financial coaching, fresh produce, and civic engagement programs. In the 1990s, Fenway CDC had organized the Taste of Fenway event for 10 years. We revived this event in 2016 in a brand new way in collaboration with the business community in the Fenway.
