Taste of the Nation

Share Our Strength's Taste of the Nation is the nation's 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 events across the United States and Canada, with one goal in mind: to raise the critical funds needed to end childhood hunger.

One hundred percent of ticket sales from all Taste of the Nation events go to more than 100 of the country's most effective and strategic anti-hunger organizations.

On April 20 Manchester will host a Taste of the Nation event at the Radisson Hotel Center of New Hampshire. The day maybe a month away, but tickets are on sale now and typically sell out well in advance.
