That Time We Went to Taste of the Nation

A friend of ours is on the committee for Taste of the Nation DC so we joined her at the National Building Museum for last year’s event. It was a rare night out for us, as new parents, but we enjoyed it immensely and decided to get a babysitter and go again! This year, Taste of The Nation DC was held at Nationals Park, where guests got to mingle, browse the silent auction, and sample food, drinks, and desserts from over 90 area chefs and bartenders.

Not only did we get to try food from all of the best restaurants that DC has to offer, Taste of the Nation supports No Kid Hungry/Share Our Strength.

Nearly one in six children in America lives in homes that struggle to put food on the table. Three out of four teachers say that they have students that come to school hungry in the morning. Check the numbers:

22 million kids rely on free or reduced-cost school lunch.
12 million kids rely on free or reduced-cost school breakfast.
4 million kids rely on free meals in the summer when school meals aren’t available.

How can you help? You can start by looking for one of No Kid Hungry’s awesome culinary events in a town near you. You can also take action and donate. A gift of $20 can provide 200 meals for kids!
