South Florida’s Taste of the Nation for No Kid Hungry is the region’s premier culinary benefit- an elegant evening featuring chefs and mixologists from over 50 of South Florida’s best restaurants and bars. You can look forward to bite-size fare, craft cocktails, and delectable desserts while mingling with South Florida’s top tastemakers- all of whom are coming together to donate their time, talent and passion to end childhood hunger in America.

Since 1988, Taste of the Nation has been delighting diners across the country by bringing together culinary experts to donate their time and skill for a good cause. The goal of each Taste of the Nation event is to raise much-needed funds to help end childhood hunger. In 2019 South Florida’s Taste of the Nation raised over $198,000 for the No Kid Hungry campaign’s work in Florida 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.
