Sometimes, being charitable has a tasty reward. Share Our Strength’s Taste of the Nation has become one of the country’s leading culinary events, with individual foodie events sprouting up throughout different regions, giving participants a chance to sample some of the area’s top eateries while helping eradicate childhood hunger. On April 23, the Kravis Center will host the fourth annual Taste of the Nation Palm Beach, with 35 of the area’s hottest restaurants and chefs combining their talents for an evening of “shared strength” so no child goes hungry.
Over the years, Taste of the Nation Palm Beach has become one of the most anticipated foodie events of the season, and this year is no exception. In the able hands of the event’s four chairpersons—celebrated chefs Zach Bell, Clay Conley, Lindsay Autry and Allen Susser—the tradition will continue, with a few additions thrown into the recipe. Cheese lovers can get their fill at the Mozzarita station with a pulling demo, for instance, while mixologist extraordinaire Charles Steadman will man the craft cocktail bar. But at the heart of the delicious events in store April 23 is an important cause: ending childhood hunger in the country.
“I love seeing our local food community support the fight against childhood hunger,” Conley says. “Share Our Strength’s Taste of the Nation Palm Beach is a sensational event that raises both funds and awareness for this relevant issue. The ‘No Kid Hungry’ campaign says it all.”
- General admission costs $100 per ticket. VIP access, which includes access to the VIP lounge, early access to the event, and unlimited food and beverages, costs $150 per ticket.
- Share Our Strength’s Taste of the Nation Palm Beach will run from 6:30-10 p.m. (7-10 p.m. for general admission) on April 23 at the Kavis Center’s Cohen Pavilion.
