Taste of the Nation Baltimore is one of 40 culinary events held across the country each year raising funds for the national non-profit Share Our Strength dedicated to ending childhood hunger.

Chefs from Michael Mina's upcoming eagerly awaited Wit & Wisdom will be there, along with representatives from Pierpoint, Charm City Cakes, B&O Brasserie and Clementine.

Taste of the Nation will be held on Saturday, Oct. 15 at the Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace Hotel. Taste of the Nation events have been held since 1988, but is first time one is being held in Baltimore.(UPDATE, Oct. 6, 1:51 pm.: A reader pointed out, correctly, that Baltimore did participate in Taste of the Nation at least once before, in June 2008) It will coincide with Share Our Strength's Conference of Leaders, which is being held at the Renaissance Harborplace Hotel Oct. 16-17. Governor Martin O'Malley will be honored at the Sunday night Leadership Awards Dinner.

Anne Sheridan, Maryland director of No Kid Hungry for Share Our Strength, said "One of the reasons we chose to hold the conference in Baltimore this year is because it offers the chance to highlight the tremendous steps Maryland has taken to help decrease the number of kids at risk of hunger thanks to the leadership of Governor O’Malley and all our partner organizations who are working on innovative solutions with schools, local organizations and the faith community."
