I love to eat, but it's not just about the food. It's about the company kept, the conversations had and the memories made while sitting down to a meal. Sitting down with my own children, reminds me of when I was young. My mother frying chicken on the stove top, NPR playing in the background, the smell of the white rice cooking at every meal. We were - we are - fortunate. Sure there were, and are still, plenty of nights full of fighting children, burned vegetables and absent family members. But as I look back I realize, the majority of my fondest memories revolve around the meals I've shared with the people I love.
If you can picture yourself in a room filled with tables of food prepared by the greatest restaurants in your area then congratulations, you have officially made it to Taste of the Nation. This culinary benefit to support Share Our Strength's efforts to end childhood hunger in America began back in 1988 as most things do, with a small group of restaurants (25 to be exact) coming together to share their love of food and wine in the hopes of making a difference. A difference they made, raising nearly $250,000 in a single day! Taste of the Nation has since raised more than $75million and has blossomed into a nationwide movement with nearly 40 events scheduled to be hosted across the country (even one in Canada!).
