Share Our Strength’s Taste of the Nation

The 20th anniversary celebration of Share our Strength’s Taste of the Nation® Atlanta, presented by American Express®, raised $750,000 to end childhood hunger in Atlanta. Approximately 850 people gathered at the Georgia Aquarium for the gourmet food and wine event that featured specialty food samplings from 50 of the city’s top chefs, live and silent auctions, wine tastings and live entertainment. Proceeds from the evening  help fund Share Our Strength’s strategy to end childhood hunger in Atlanta, and its surrounding communities along with the continued support of organizations such as the Atlanta Community Food Bank, Project Open Hand and Genesis, A New Life.
