Share Our Strength’s Taste of the Nation® is the nation’s premier culinary benefit dedicated to making sure no kid grows up hungry. Each spring and summer, the nation’s hottest chefs and mixologists donate their time, talent and passion at nearly 40 events across the United States and Canada, with one goal in mind: to raise the critical funds needed to end childhood hunger. 100% of ticket sales supports Share Our Strength's efforts to end childhood hunger.
Nearly 17 million children face hunger in America. Most families that live below the poverty line in America are working families, yet their regular income is not sufficient to cover the cost of housing, medical care, child care, transportation, clothing and food. Employment is simply not enough to safeguard these families against hunger and poverty.
Proceeds locally benefit the University of Nevada, Reno Foundation/UNCE Chefs for Kids , Catholic Charities of Southern Nevada, Three Square Food Bank and Project MANA. All organizations are fighting to end childhood hunger in Nevada.
