No Kid Hungry: Taste of the Nation - Houston, 9/29/15

No child should grow up hungry in America, but one in five children struggles with hunger. But it doesn't have to be that way. No Kid Hungry is ending childhood hunger in this nation by making sure all kids get the healthy food they need, every day. And you can help, all while enjoying some of the best food and drink in Texas at Houston’s Taste of the Nation for No Kid Hungry!

Every year, the country’s best chefs, sommeliers and mixologists join together with one goal in mind: end childhood hunger in America by supporting Taste of the Nation® for No Kid Hungry, presented by Citi® and Sysco®. In more than 30 cities across the nation – including Houston – guests of Taste of the Nation can sip and sample gourmet creations from each city’s premier culinary talent and participate in unique food, travel and lifestyle auctions – all while raising funds for No Kid Hungry.

Houston’s Taste of the Nation is coming up on September 29, at The Corinthian in downtown Houston. 40+ top Houston chefs – including Chef Chris Shepherd, Chef Randy Evans, Chef and BBQ Master Ronnie Killen, and Beverage Chair Alba Huerta – will be serving bite-sized versions their signature fare, as well as a sampling of excellent wines and creative craft cocktails.
