Taste of the Nation Portland 2014

Tuesday April 29th 2014 

McMenamins Crystal Hotel & Ballroom

Enjoy an evening with Oregon's Best Chefs, Winemakers, Brewers & Distillers as they come together to end childhood hunger.

Each ticket purchased helps support Share Our Strength’s efforts in eliminating childhood hunger as well as our local beneficiaries. In the wake of staggering reports that nearly half of all children in the U.S. will be on food stamps at the some point in their life, there is no time to waste. The time to act is now.

Thank you for your continued support in our mission to ensure that no kid goes hungry and we look forward to seeing you at the Taste of the Nation Portland 2014!

Hunger Data in Oregon

  • No Kid Hungry- Oregon (Here)
  • Partners for a Hunger-Free Oregon (Here)



  • Oregon Food Bank: To eliminate hunger and its root causes ... because no one should be hungry. Oregon Food Bank takes a holistic approach to ending hunger by bringing our community together to provide food, education and hope to our neighbors in need.


  • St. Vincent de Paul Society: Food-for-Kid (FFK) is a supplemental food program for children ages 3 to 18, offering nutritious single-serving food items. Typically sacks contain: 1 protein, 1 cereal, 1 fruit bar, 1 snack bar, 1 small bag of chips, 1 fruit cup, & 1-2 juices. We deliver over 325 packets per week to 17 schools. Many of these school children are homeless.  At this time our FFK program operates only in rural Clackamas County, but we are hoping to expand the program into Washington County in the future.


  • Klamath/Lake Counties Food Bank: To address hunger by providing food to emergency food assistance programs and support other non-profit agencies and their programs that have a positive affect on the lives of children and adults in Klamath and Lake Counties.
