"Top Chef" winner Nick Elmi of Laurel, ITV and Royal Boucherie in Philly is hosting the 2019 Taste of the Nation for No Kid Hungry on Thursday, May 9, at Bok Bar.

Each year, cities across the U.S. throw Taste of the Nation parties with their area's best food and drink in order to raise funds to end childhood hunger in America.
