It's Back! Great Food And Fun To Combat Childhood Hunger


South Florida's Taste of the Nation for No Kid Hungry is back and better than ever for 2017. Held at our beautiful event space Soho Studios for the second year in a row, this premier culinary event brings some of the nation's top chefs, mixologists and wineries together for an evening of food, drinks and entertainment for a cause: ending childhood hunger in America. Hosted this year by CBS4 morning news anchor Marybel Rodriguez and Froggy from Elvis Duran and the Morning Show, the cultivated event of gourmet food and wine features chefs and tasting dishes from more than 50 of South Florida's top restaurants.

Organized by Share Our Strength, a national non-profit committed to fighting childhood hunger, Taste of the Nation is designed to raise funds for the organization's valuable community work and food programs, donating 100 percent of all proceeds from the event to support their mission.

Guests are invited to indulge in a feast of innovative menus designed by this year's participating restaurants with accompanying wines, spirits and beers.

South Florida Taste of the Nation at Soho Studios

Every single day a child goes hungry in America. Thankfully, there are people and organizations willing to help by gathering the collective resources needed to curb childhood hunger. One such organization is Share Our Strength, more famously recognized as the No Kid Hungry campaign. Here in Miami, Soho Studios will be the 2016 site of the next No Kid Hungry fundraising event.

South Florida’s Taste of the Nation, hosted on behalf of the nonprofit organization Share Our Strength, brings attention to the importance of ending childhood hunger in America.

No Kid Hungry Dinner in Little Rock

Last year, the Little Rock No Kid Hungry Dinner raised $70,000 to support the fight against childhood hunger in Arkansas. At this fundraiser, chefs from Arkansas dominated the stage alongside Chef Cassidee Dabnet from The Barn at Blackberry Farm, one of the best places to dine in Tennessee. The goal of the 2016 Taste of the Nation is to exceed the financial reaches of Little Rock’s success.


What to Expect in 2016

Taste of the Nation is bringing out the culinary champions. Legends in the kitchen, Chef Allen Susser and Chef Timon Balloo are teaming up for the evening. Following the theme of Taste of the Nation, the event will showcase the fine dining experiences of more than 50 restaurants and food vendors from Fort Lauderdale and Miami. As Chef Susser has lead Taste of the Nation here in Miami for almost three decades, his talents and experience will shine, as he helps host one of the city’s favorite culinary events.

The evening involves more than just excellent wine and gourmet cuisine. Prepare to participate in a variety of auctions including a wine, silent and live auction, with all proceeds going to support the campaign. One hundred percent of ticket sales are going directly to the Share Our Strength organization. The Taste of the Nation is a long formed tradition here in South Florida, following its inception in 1988. Become a part of the local community while enjoying a fabulous night out in Miami.
