Taste of The Nation

Taste of the Nation is a culinary benefit that will have people opening up their wallets and expanding their waistlines to end childhood hunger. Twenty local top chefs and mixologists have donated their time to the event, which seats a couple hundred guests. Tables of ten will range from $5,000 to $10,000 for a minimum four-course dinner and Dutch Treat table tickets are available for $500 each. The area charities benefiting from this year’s event include the North Texas Food Bank, Wilkinson Center and Center for Public Policy Priorities. Taste of the Nation has raised more than $70 million dollars since its inception in the late ‘80s. All proceeds will go toward helping end childhood hunger.
