Thank you, Houston!
On Tuesday, September 20, over 50 chefs, pitmasters, and bartenders joined forces for Houston's Taste of the Nation at The Corinthian. Houston's top chefs and mixologists donated their time, talent and passion with one goal in mind: to raise the critical funds needed to end childhood hunger in America. Since 1988, this premier tasting event has raised over $2.4 million help end childhood hunger. Check out our 2016 recap here!

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.
