Join Us to End Childhood Hunger in America

Ensure that no kid goes hungry, whether in Minneapolis or across the nation, by joining the city’s finest chefs and mixologists in June for Minneapolis’ Taste of the Nation Hotlist for No Kid Hungry, a remarkable night of dining in support of No Kid Hungry’s work to end childhood hunger in America.

Guests will mix, mingle, and enjoy food and drink prepared by more than 30 top chefs and bartenders.

How No Kid Hungry is making a difference in Minnesota:

  • 1 in 8 kids in Minnesota struggles with hunger
  • Only 44% of kids who eat free/reduced price school lunch also eat school breakfast
  • Only 18% of kids who eat free/reduced price school lunch also eat summer meals
  • A $50 donation can provide 500 meals to kids in Minnesota
