Chicago’s Taste of the Nation

Chicago, IL


As the pandemic continues on, Chicago’s Taste of the Nation will remain on hold. Our dedicated team is exploring new ways to engage and support the restaurant community while also adapting to the evolving circumstances we face. We look forward to bringing you unique culinary experiences in the future. 

We encourage you to follow our Instagram handle for updates in 2021. Please email with any questions or to learn how you can still partner with No Kid Hungry.


Join us  for Chicago’s Taste of the Nation!

Co-chaired by Joe Flamm – Top Chef Season 15 Winner, Diana Davila – Executive Chef and Owner | Mi Tocaya Antojeria, and Elissa Narow – Pastry Chef | Frontera Grill, the 31st Chicago’s Taste of the Nation will unite the region’s best chefs and mixologists.

You can look forward to bite-size fare, craft cocktails, and delectable desserts while mingling with Chicago’s top tastemakers- all of whom are coming 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 Illinois. We’re proud to partner with the Greater Chicago Food Depository and many other schools and organizations on No Kid Hungry Illinois. Together, we are making sure every kid gets three meals a day.

Please note this is a 21+ event.
