Eat to Defeat Hunger

You want Italian; he wants sushi. You’ll settle for Mexican, but he is insisting on seafood. Can you even decide on dessert? The gloves can come off tonight when you food-fighters agree on attending the nineteenth annual Share Our Strength’s Taste of the Nation presented by American Express and Jenn-Air. With nearly 40 local chefs ready to serve you, there will be plenty of tasty options for even the pickiest eaters. Chef Allen Susser, chairman of Miami Share Our Strength (SOS), has assembled a stellar cast for this year’s fundraising fiesta, including Blue Door’s Alan McLennan, China Grill’s Keyvan Behnam, North One 10’s Dewey LoSasso, Vix’s James Wierzelewski, and Rosa Mexicano’s Roberto Santibañez.

Since its inception, SOS’s Taste of the Nation has raised more than $55 million in support of groups working to end hunger and poverty. Through corporate sponsorships and volunteer efforts, 100 percent of ticket proceeds will benefit agencies such as the Daily Bread Food Bank and Camillus House. The bubbly will begin flowing at the VIP champagne reception at 6:00; general admission is from 7:00 to 10:00.
Wed., July 19, 7-10 p.m.
