This Saturday, June 1, the First Annual Latin Taste Fest will take place with a high-end celebration of Latin culture and cuisine, but also an opportunity to alleviate hunger through exclusive charity partner Feeding South Florida.

The food, wine and spirits festival will feature cuisine samplings, wines, beers, brand liquors and gourmet cooking classes, plus an eclectic variety of live Latin musical entertainment, exhibits and activities. A variety of top local Latin restaurants such as Divino Ceviche Peruvian Cuisine, Cholo’s Ceviche and Grill, Fusion Latin Cuisine and La Palma, will offer a taste of their specialty dishes. VIP guests will have additional access to a special casino-themed area with select restaurants, wine and spirits exhibitors.

A portion of all ticket sale proceeds and all food overages from the event will be donated to Feeding South Florida, the leading domestic organization working to end hunger in South Florida.

“Fresh, homemade meals are an important part of bringing family together in Latin culture,” said Feeding South Florida CEO Paco Vélez. “What a wonderful idea for an event to incorporate the celebration of food, music, and art in Latin culture to benefit Feeding South Florida, which helps bring families together by setting the table for the one million individuals who are food insecure in South Florida.”
