Houston’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 40 of Houston’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.

Since 1988, Taste of the Nation has delighted diners across the country by bringing together culinary stars to donate their time and talent for a good cause. In 2019 Houston’s Taste of the Nation raised over $205,000 for the No Kid Hungry campaign’s work in Texas and across the nation!

Doing good has never tasted better. 100% of proceeds support the No Kid Hungry campaign’s work to end childhood hunger in America.

Please note: This is a 21+ Event.

Our Impact

In Texas, 1 in 4 kids lives with hunger. Only 10% of kids who qualify for free or reduced-price lunch also get summer meals; only 62% of the same kids receive school breakfast.

Your support through a ticket or sponsorship purchase will help launch school breakfast programs, recruit summer meals, and empower families to shop for an prepare healthy meals. It also provides grants to the most effective hunger-fighting organization across the country to help them end child hunger in their communities with the bulk of the proceeds staying in Texas and going to local non-profits.

See how the No Kid Hungry Campaign is changing lives.
