Thank You, Houston!
Share Our Strength’s Taste of the Nation® Houston 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.
Taste of the Nation Houston 2013 proved to be a culinary extravaganza featuring food and wine from 30 of Houston’s finest restaurants and chefs. Attendees spent the evening strolling, sipping and socializing with fellow Houstonians at the lovely Houstonian Hotel Club & Spa, while raising over $130,000 to fight hunger. VIP Guests had the opportunity to mingle in the exclusive VIP Lounge with specialty drinks and private catering.
100% of ticket sales supports Share Our Strength's efforts to end childhood hunger.
Please note: No one under the age of 21, including children in strollers and/or accompanied by their parents, will be 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.
