Taste of the Nation to come to D.C.
January 25, 2013 by Mark
The annual Taste of the Nation, featuring “Share our Strengths No Kid Hungry”, will take place in Washington D.C. in a couple of months’ time.
The culinary event comprises the city’s top chefs, mixologists, and best restaurants donating their time and expertise to raise funds for efforts in preventing hunger.
A council has been appointed to oversee the event and includes representatives from Taco Bamba, The Source, Graffiato and Bandolero, and Bibiana. Mixology chair include Gina Chersevani from Hank’s on the Hill and the Union Market.
Taste of the Nation Washington D.C. exists to promote awareness and solicit assistance in issues related to childhood hunger. With over 16 million children in the country suffering from hunger due to living conditions, the organization has worked to raise over $80m globally. Nearly $2m have been donated to Washington D.C. local entities including DC Hunger Solutions, Mary’s Center, and Capital Area Food Bank. Part of the funding has also been applied to the national No Kid Hungry campaign.
Fundraising campaigns require a great deal of communication, coordination, and management. A critical aspect of fundraising involves public communication to ensure community awareness to increase participation. Printing companies frequently work with the fundraising teams in preparing print materials for the event. Poster printing is a viable method of mass announcing an upcoming event. Posters can be posted throughout a region on buildings, pillars, windows, and doors. They can also be handed out from various outlets or direct mailed.
The event is set for April 8 at the National Building Museum from 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm. For more information on the Taste of the Nation, visit the event website or call 202-393-2925.
