Join us for DC’s Taste of the Nation for No Kid Hungry on Sunday, May 15!

We are excited to return and take the festivities outdoors to the newly-renovated Franklin Park, located in the heart of Downtown DC. You can look forward to bite-size fare, craft cocktails, and delectable desserts while mingling with DC’s top tastemakers—all of whom are coming together to donate their time, talent, and passion to end childhood hunger in America.

This event will be held, rain or shine.
