Like many cities, Houston continues to struggle with poverty and food insecurity—still 1 in 4 kids struggle with hunger. In previous years, Taste of the Nation has raised thousands of dollars, and all proceeds go toward helping launch school breakfast programs, provide summer meals, and empower families to shop and prepare healthy meals.
The event will be held at Silver Street Studios on Wednesday, May 22 from 7 – 9 p.m. Tickets start at $125. For additional information and to purchase tickets, visit the No Kid Hungry website.
