Charlotte’s Taste of the Nation for No Kid Hungry is the city’s premier culinary benefit. This one of a kind event features chefs and mixologists from over 20 of Charlotte’s best restaurants and bars. Enjoy bite-size fare, craft cocktails, and delectable desserts while mingling with city’s top tastemakers, all of whom come together to donate their time, talent and passion to end childhood hunger in America.

100% of proceeds support the No Kid Hungry campaign’s work to end childhood hunger in North Carolina. We’re proud to partner with local organizations like Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina, the Community Culinary School of Charlotte, and other schools and organizations on No Kid Hungry North Carolina. Together, we are making sure every kid gets three meals a day
