“For years Taste! Central Florida has been an incredible way to raise awareness and funds for one of the most critical issues in our community—childhood hunger.  Thanks to the amazing support of our community, these funds have been able to make a huge impact on young shelter guests at the Coalition, who with their parents rely on us to provide them with healthy meals during their journey toward stable housing. On any given day, there are about 100 children staying in our Center for Women and Families. Your generous support of Taste! Central Florida ensures that these children wake up to a nutritious breakfast and end the day eating dinner with their families, never worrying when their next meal will be. Thank you for making this possible.”

This annual celebration of the community’s culinary excellence is a volunteer-driven event with local chefs, brewers and distilleries donating their time, talent and creations to make this event one of the largest fundraisers of the year for Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida and Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida.

An all-volunteer steering committee, more than 300 day-of event volunteers, and tremendous in-kind support from a variety of local business partners allow us to direct every dollar raised to our beneficiaries while generating profound awareness and relief for the children of Central Florida who face hunger on a daily basis.

Now in its 33rd year and having raised more than $4 million dollars for childhood hunger, the region’s premier food and beverage tasting event brings a supremely delicious experience to our community, for our community, with a positively local flavor.

We’re back with our same distinguished local chefs, committed local volunteers, and important local beneficiaries.

The best part? All event proceeds will remain in our community to help connect struggling Central Florida families to the meals they need.
