This is the third year in a row that I’ll be attending the incredible Taste of the Nation event in San Francisco next Thursday 3/23. This is the third year I’m going with my bestie Aimee ? and I’m so excited to share more about the event with you and try to convince/encourage you to join us!
The event is one of my favorite ones to attend each year, because some of the best restaurants, wineries, breweries and bars in the city come together to support an incredible cause – to end childhood hunger in the Bay Area. The stats around childhood hunger appalling. 1 in 5 children in America live in households without consistent access to food. That’s 13 million children. And 25% of children in California are “food insecure” meaning they don’t get enough food, period. Check out this fact sheet from No Kid Hungry for more hard realities surrounding the topic.
So back to the Taste of the Nation event itself – Attendees get to try food from 40+ of the THEEEE best restaurants like Central Kitchen, Tacolicious, Perbacco, Slanted Door, Flour + Water, the girl and the fig (one of my all-time faves), Soulva, Wayfare, and more! Plus, you get lots of drink samples from 15+ wineries and 5+ breweries. ??
And here’s the best part: 100% of proceeds from the event support Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign to end childhood hunger in America. I love the local element too, as donations directly go to amazing organizations here in the Bay Area, including 18 Reasons, California Association of Food Banks, California Food Policy Advocates, No Kid Hungry Bay Area and Children of Shelters. All of these organizations provide food, food-related education and programming, and more, to children and families in need here in the Bay Area.
So…join me! Support this incredible cause and provide children and families with the food and food-related resources they need to survive and thrive. And come eat and drink your way through some of the very best San Francisco spots.
