Taste of the Nation® For No Kid Hungry
South Florida's Taste of the Nation® for No Kid Hungry is the nation’s premier culinary benefit, featuring top chefs and mixologists — all of whom are coming together to donate their time, talent and passion to end childhood hunger in America.
Big names bring bold flavors to Taste of the Nation South Florida. Join the likes of legendary Chef Allen Susser, Chef Timon Balloo of Sugarcane Raw Bar Grille for South Florida's premiere culinary affair.
An elegant evening of gourmet food and wine, Taste of the Nation features chefs and gourmet cuisine from over 50 restaurants and vendors catering to both Miami and Fort Lauderdale. The evening will also include live entertainment along with live, silent and wine auctions. Chef Allen Susser, chair of Taste of the Nation Miami for 25 years, will pull together an incredible line-up of local restaurants committed to Share Our Strength’s vision to end childhood hunger.
Since 1988, Taste of the Nation has been delighting diners by bringing together the greatest culinary experts to donate their time and skill for a good cause. Produced by Share Our Strength, a national nonprofit fighting childhood hunger, the goal of each Taste of the Nation event is to raise much-needed funds to help end childhood hunger. You'll feast on a number of dishes from a bevy of chefs, take part in a silent auction, relax in a lounge area, enjoy cooking competitions, special wine and spirits, and gift bags. Doing good has never tasted better. 100 percent of ticket sales from this Taste of the Nation event benefit Share Our Strength's mission to fight and end childhood hunger.
