On May 3, Taste of the Nation, the largest charity event from Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry initiative, held its annual festival in Philadelphia at Loews Hotel with 50 of the city's best chefs, bartenders and restaurants giving away food and drink for a good cause. The event raised over $35,000 for No Kid Hungry and its beneficiaries, which equates to giving children access to 350,000 meals, according to Samantha DeNafo from Share Our Strength.

Taste of the Nation was a great place to sample beverages, too. Christina Rando from Brick + Mortar, Dan Lam from 1 Tippling Place and Jesse Cornell from Vesper all made dynamic cocktails, while the Bloody Mary with the shrimp and cornichons from Jerry's Bar was more of a meal.
