Join us for Chicago’s Taste of the Nation!

Co-chaired by Joe Flamm – Executive Chef and Owner | Rose Mary and Diana Davila – Executive Chef and Owner | Mi Tocaya Antojeria, Chicago’s most celebrated culinary event for a cause is back! Taste the best Chicago has to offer in one place, in one night–all while supporting the fight against childhood hunger.

Join us for delicious bites, sips, entertainment–and more–to help raise funds for the No Kid Hungry campaign! This year’s event will feature over 40+ of the city’s top culinary talent to include award winning chefs, restaurants, mixologists and more.

Calling All Foodies: Try gourmet bites from dozens of award-winning restaurants without racking up dozens of dinner bills! Curated by our distinguished chef chairs, Taste of the Nation brings together Chicago’s top chefs, restaurateurs, and mixologists to serve you scrumptious bite-sized fare, craft cocktails, and delectable desserts.

From street eats to upscale dishes, you’ll have a tough time leaving space for everything you want to try. Savor curated sips by celebrated local mixologists, winemakers, and brewers, and don’t forget to raise a glass in support of No Kid Hungry!

End Childhood Hunger: One in five kids in the US is living with hunger. No Kid Hungry is working to make sure every child gets three meals a day by advocating for these programs and helping communities get the resources they need to feed children. Your ticket to Taste of the Nation raises funds for this work, with each dollar providing up to 10 meals for kids in need.

Bring the Crew: Swap out the usual happy hour with coworkers or weekday dinner with friends for a night to remember! As you eat and drink your way through the gorgeous Rockwell on the River, give your stomach some breaks to enjoy live music, raffles, and games. And the cherry on top of the culinary experience? Interactive experiences and the opportunity to hang out with the chefs you’ve always wanted to meet.

Taste of the Nation has all the ingredients for an evening to remember.
