We're taking the fight to end childhood hunger back outside.
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.
This year, Taste of the Nation Houston is taking the fight to end childhood hunger back outside. After several successful years inside The Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa, the event is moving the original garden party back under their beautiful oak tree.
Attendees will spend the evening strolling, sipping and socializing with fellow Houstonians on the lawn, while raising money to fight hunger. Our silent auction, Plinko for Hunger game, and wine basket raffle give everyone a chance to do their part for our local beneficiaries - The Houston Food Bank, Kids' Meals Houston, the Center for Public Priorities, and Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry Campaign.
VIP guests have the opportunity to mingle in the exclusive VIP Lounge with specialty drinks and private catering. We are hoping to outdo ourselves once again in 2014, so please stay tuned for event updates in the coming months.
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.
