Individuals who work at Taste Buds learn a broad range of skills needed to work in the food service industry either in the community or in a supported work environment. With the support of experienced UDS staff members, individuals learn how to prepare and serve food, interact with customers and help others who have joined the program adjust to their new work environment.

The ordering process is quick and convenient, the packaging is professional, the food is delicious and the service is outstanding. I've heard nothing but high praise from those who've eaten the lunches and the fact that Taste Buds provides employment to folks in the community with disabilities is wonderful."
