Stay Tuned for Information on Houston's Taste of the Nation in 2015!

Houston's Taste of the Nation® for No Kid Hungry is the city's premier culinary benefit supporting the effort to end childhood hunger in America. Funds raised are granted to organizations that work to end childhood hunger, both in communities where Taste of the Nation events are held and in other communities across the country.

In 2014 guests joined over twenty of Houston’s top chefs and restaurants as they donate their time, talent and passion with one goal in mind: to raise the critical funds needed to support Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign to end childhood hunger. Attendees spent the evening strolling, sipping and socializing on the Houstonian’s picturesque lawn, with an exclusive opportunity to bid on exclusive silent auction items and play Plinko for Hunger – all to help make No Kid Hungry a reality. VIP guests had the opportunity to mingle in the exclusive VIP Lounge with specialty drinks and private catering. 

Please note: No one under the age of 21, including children in strollers and/or accompanied by their parents, is admitted to Taste of the Nation. Please bring valid government-issued photo identification such as a driver’s license or passport for proof of age.
