Taste of St. Jude events are one-of-a-kind tasting experiences to benefit the lifesaving mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Our culinary events vary in the format, as some are restaurant tastings, some fine dining and some farm-to-table events. The common thread is a shared passion for supporting St. Jude through the culinary arts to ensure that families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live. This series of tasting events takes place throughout the country creating awareness and raising funds for St. Jude.


Tasting Series



Our chefs, farmers, butchers, confectioners, distillers, brewers, vintners and restaurateurs come from every ethnic background of the world to support St. Jude with unparalleled culinary events. We partner with nationally recognized culinary artists by asking them to showcase their craft to our donors and supporters. Similar to St. Jude, these culinary ambassadors are on the cutting edge of their field.

They are the established veterans and the up and comers of the food world. They help connect St. Jude with new relationships and help to enhance our fundraising efforts and brand awareness by celebrating the rich culture of their heritage through creating unique culinary experiences at every event.
