Taste of the Nation Charity Event Returns, Bringing Together Chefs to Fight Childhood Hunger

Taste of the Nation benefits the No Kid Hungry charity and will be chaired this year by Danny Meyer and Anita Lo

Eat amazing food for a worthy cause: We can’t see a downside.

New York City’s Taste of the Nation Night Out for No Kid Hungry charity fundraiser event is back this year for another round of well-known chefs from all five boroughs serving samples of their dishes all to raise money to end childhood hunger. This year, the event is being chaired by Danny Meyer, while the culinary co-chairs are Anita Lo (of Annisa) and Bryce Shuman (of Betony), and the spirits chair is Eamon Rockey (also of Betony).

"It was an honor to be asked to be a culinary co-chair of this year's and last's Night Out for No Kid Hungry Event which raises funds to help end childhood hunger in America,” Anita Lo told The Daily Meal. “Food is not only basic fuel, but food is culture and food is identity, and programs like these are essential in building our country's future."

This year’s event will feature dishes from Daniella Soto-Innes of Cosme, Eli Sussman of Samesa, Leah Cohen of Pig & Khao, and Chris Jaeckle of All'onda.

The entire event will help put free breakfast programs in every school around New York City; each dollar donated helps to put 10 meals in front of a hungry child.
