Honorary Chef Chair Tim McKee invited guests to the Guthrie Theater on June 23, 2014 to sample the Twin Cities' hottest food and drink trends at Minneapolis' Taste of the Nation® HOTlist for No Kid Hungry. Chefs offered portions of their very best dishes for guests to sample, and bartenders shook up unique cocktails and poured fine wine and beer for guests' enjoyment.
We're thrilled to feature an incredible lineup of local restaurants committed to Share Our Strength's vision of ending childhood hunger. HOTlist 2014 again featured a silent auction filled with delightful packages and unique experiences. Guests also enjoyed great music, dancing, and scenic views of the Mississippi river.

Guests also had the opportunity to bid on unique and one-of-a-kind items in the evening's silent auction and more.
