On April 9th, Farmers & Distillers and Founding Spirits attended Taste of the Nation at the National Building Museum in downtown DC.

Joining 80 area restaurants, Farmers & Distillers served one of our guest favorites, our delicious Crunchy Ahi Tuna Bites. Founding Spirits was in the event VIP Lounge mixing and serving our Suffering Candidate, a smoky, yet refreshing craft cocktail made with our Founding Farmers Rye Whisky and mingled with the lighter botanical notes of our Founding Farmers Gin.

Taste of the Nation is the culinary event organized by Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign that highlights the nation’s finest talent in the food and drink industry, all united under one roof for one cause: ending childhood hunger.

In the U.S., one in six children struggle with hunger. No Kid Hungry unites teachers, chefs, community leaders, parents, lawmakers, and CEOs to help solve childhood hunger. They work to connect kids in need with nutritious food, including teaching families to learn how to cook healthy, affordable meals.

No Kid Hungry has fed 775 million meals to children, a remarkable milestone made possible from fundraising events like Taste of the Nation.

For those interested, they always welcome individual donations too.
