In 2014 guests joined Chef Chair David Katz, Honorary Chair Greg Vernick, and Mixology Chair Phoebe Esmon for Philadelphia's Taste of the Nation® for No Kid Hungry. The event brought together the area's top chefs and restaurants who donated their time, talent and passion to end childhood hunger in America. Along with a bounty of culinary delights, guests had the opportunity to sample select wines, specialty cocktails and premium beers. 


Thanks to all who help us to ensure that no kid in America grows up hungry! The beneficiaries of Philadelphia's Taste of the Nation are The Food Trust, The Greater Philadelphia Coalition Against Hunger, and The Pennsylvania Hunger Action Center.

Who We Help

 

Greater Philadelphia Coalition Against Hunger

The Greater Philadelphia Coalition Against Hunger strives to build a community where all people have the food they need to lead healthy lives. Founded in 1996, the Coalition has helped more than 50,000 families in the Philadelphia region with food assistance through its SNAP (Food Stamp) Hotline, while educating the public and policymakers about responsible solutions that prevent people from going hungry. The Coalition also provides training and resources to more than 100 local food pantries and soup kitchens and organizes the annual Walk+Run Against Hunger, which raises much-needed funds to the area's leading hunger-relief agencies.

 



The Food Trust

The Food Trust strives to make healthy food available to all. Working with neighborhoods, schools, grocers, farmers and policymakers, The Food Trust has developed a comprehensive approach to improve food environments and teach nutrition education in schools, work with corner store owners to increase healthy offerings and help customers make healthier choices, bring farmers' markets to communities that lack access to affordable produce and encourage other fresh food retail development in underserved communities.
 


 

The Pennsylvania Hunger Action Center

The Pennsylvania Hunger Action Center works to end hunger and increase opportunities for all Pennsylvanians to meet their food needs with health and dignity. In existence for 30 years, the Center serves as an active voice to shape public food policy. The Center's efforts focus on advocacy, linking people to food, policy studies, news and alerts and anti-hunger networking.
