Dallas, Texas
Registration Close Date: October 16, 2022

This event is open to adult military survivors. Registration is limited, so be sure to sign up soon!

TAPS Togethers is thrilled to announce our partnership with H-E-B Operation Appreciation. H-E-B has generously offered to sponsor TAPS survivors as they perfect their pairings, practice new techniques, expand their repertoire, and improve their confidence in the kitchen! Cooking classes are taught by expert cooking school instructors at participating Central Market locations throughout Texas.  

In this one and half hour, demonstration class, our instructors will show you how to make a tasty meal that will pique your interest in Mexican cuisine. On the menu:  slow roasted short ribs served with tender black beans, highlighted by the flavors and textures of a crunchy, quick slaw. As our instructors show you how to make each dish, you'll sit back and enjoy each bite.

About TAPS Togethers

Community is important!  This is why we create a broad variety of opportunities to bring the TAPS family together.  TAPS Togethers are one-day, organized, social events across the country, led by TAPS Staff or a survivor like you, with the goal of expanding our peer support community. 

If there is not a TAPS Togethers event in your area, consider hosting one. You know your community best! Perhaps you know of a simple cost-effective way to bring TAPS families together for a day of hope and healing in your area. We would love to hear from you! Please submit your idea and we will connect with you to explore the possibilities.
