Pay It Forward Menu

For our families in need, Ta's is offering:

  • Ta's Egg Rolls

  • BBQ Pork

  • Fried Rice with Egg & Shrimp

We will be organizing a Takeout Thursday to support our local Family Owned Restaurants in Milpitas. We encourage, if you can, to support these local businesses in our community. 

Here's how you can help us:

  • Help us spread the word through social media and appropriate social distancing communication.

  • If you can, please consider placing a takeout order with them. This is a perfect way to sample the delicious diverse dishes that Milpitas restaurants offers. Then, take a photo of your order at home and post it to #StayStrongMilpitas to show your support and community pride.

  • And, if you can, Pay It Forward, by donating $20 to purchase a meal for families in need in our Community. This time  we are donating 10 meals to families in need. Based on the number of donations we get, we will adjust the number of Pay It Forward meals for our next event.

Through a generous donor, all transaction costs will be covered, so that the full donation goes to helping our neediest families.

Give Blood

“We need people to start turning out in force to give blood.” That urgent call-to-action coming from Peter Marks, M.D., Ph.D., director of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, as fear about the coronavirus is keeping people from wanting to donate blood.
