Foodies, philanthropists, and everyone in-between can enjoy the most celebrated food in the city on October 5th when Chicago’s Taste of the Nation for No Kid Hungry returns, this year to a new venue: Revel Fulton Market. The annual tasting event will feature the city’s top chefs, sommeliers and mixologists united for a cause: making sure all children in this country get the healthy food they need, every day. Proceeds from the event benefit No Kid Hungry’s work to end childhood hunger in America.
At the event, guests will have the opportunity to taste signature bites from a host of the city’s most celebrated restaurants, including Blackbird, Nellcôte and Swift & Sons, while enjoying craft cocktails and spirits concocted by top mixologists. Tickets start at $125, and can be purchased online at www.nokidhungry.org/chicago.
