Nearly 16 million kids in America struggle with hunger.
That’s almost one in four who don’t have consistent access to enough nutritious food to lead healthy, active lives. They live in food- insecure households and as a result, they struggle with hunger.
Despite its devastating and highly visible consequences, childhood hunger is invisible. You can’t see it just by looking, and you can’t measure it in pounds, but it is among us: it affects black, white, Asian and Hispanic, short and tall, thin and chubby.
Share Our Strength’s Taste of the Nation® is the nation’s premier culinary benefit dedicated to making sure no kid grows up hungry.
• One in six households in Nevada struggle with hunger
• 57% of children in the Clark County School District receive free and reduced-price meals
Poverty is complex; feeding a child is not
Share Our Strength’s Taste of the Nation® is the premier culinary benefit dedicated to making sure no kid grows up hungry. Each spring and summer, the nation’s hottest chefs and mixologists donate their time, talent and passion at nearly 40 Taste of the Nation events across the United States and Canada, with one goal in mind: to raise the critical funds needed to end childhood hunger in America.
Taste of the Nation is nationally sponsored by American Express, Sysco, Food Network and in select markets by ONEHOPE Wine, Emmi Roth USA, Cavit Collection Wines, OpenTable and S.Pellegrino Sparkling Natural Mineral Water. Since 1988, Taste of the Nation has raised more than $82.5 million. Funds raised support over 135 organizations in the United States, Canada and abroad.
This year’s Taste of the Nation Las Vegas brings together the finest chefs and restaurants, top corporations and individuals to raise the critical funds needed to end childhood hunger in America. This year our goal is to raise $150,000 to ensure that no child in the United States grows up hungry.
