Orlando’s Taste of the Nation event is coming up, on Saturday, August 8. This is one of the biggest food and wine events of the year, and it’s also one of the most important because it benefits Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry program to eradicate childhood hunger.
And we’re not talking about kids going hungry in foreign countries or even rural parts of the U.S. We’re talking about right here in Florida.
So something like Taste of the Nation is very important. All of the money raised at the event will go toward feeding hungry children right here in our own community. So the $150 ticket charge seems a mere pittance when you consider the good it can do.
I have the full list of participating restaurant at the link, but I’m especially proud of the restaurants that are part of the SJO advertising family. They include Highball and Harvest at Ritz-Carlton Orlando, Grande Lakes; JJ’s Grille; K Restaurant and Wine Bar; MOOR at Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center; Taverna Opa; and The Whiskey.
