Fish Tacos, Friday, May 18 - SJI Community Theater - 11am-2pm - (or until GONE) - $8.00 Suggested Donation sponsored by and with proceeds to Fish For Teeth. Fish donated from Matt’s Fresh Fish
Islanders can purchase fish tacos to support a local nonprofit that provides free dental service for locals.
The tacos, which are as large as burritos, are made with Alaskan rockfish harvest and topped with Pablitos Salsa, Tillamook cheese, fresh greens and a squeeze of lime. Volunteers ask for a donation of $8 per taco.
Fish for Teeth sponsors a mobile dental van for dental clinics on San Juan Island, three times a year. The Medical Teams International’s van can handle dental hygiene appointments to root canals.
Matt Marinkovich formed Fish for Teeth in 2007, after noticing a community need for affordable dental care. The Fish for Teeth board, comprised of local fishermen and dental professionals, sponsors the mobile dental clinic every January, May and October on San Juan Island. Fish for Teeth receives no federal funding and relies solely on donations, which are tax-deductible.
