Three Dates. Three Cities. One Cause. 

The Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore is bringing a fresh new fundraiser to the table. This Fall, we’re serving up three different days and three different ways to stroll, sample and savor your way across Hampton Roads. Come out, feed your inner-foodie, and help fight hunger.


We Hope You're Hungry for More. We realized that one night simply isn’t enough to taste all of Hampton Road’s thriving culinary scene. So, Taste 2.0 will offer participants the opportunity to indulge in three distinct “culinary crawls” throughout September and October – one in Olde Towne Portsmouth, one in Downtown Norfolk, and one in Virginia Beach Town Center- each showcasing the city’s local cuisine and culture. 

Check In for Taste in Downtown Norfolk:

What's on the Menu

Each crawl will last three hours, giving attendees the opportunity to wander from eatery to eatery at their own pace, sampling taste-sized portions of each restaurant’s most memorable and mouthwatering dishes. It’s a veritable choose-you-own-adventure of Hampton Road’s cuisine! Tickets can be purchased to one city, two cities, or all three. Taste 2.0 is expected to draw 500 attendees per city and raise enough money to provide over 350,000 meals to those in our community who struggle with hunger.

Purchasing Your Ticket: Ticket options can be found in the upper right portion of the page for one city, two cities, or all three cities. The ticket will grant admission for one individual, where you will be able to sample dishes from all restaurants participating in that city. Beverages are not included, but will be available for purchase within the various restaurants. Drink specials will be available at the discrestion of the individual restaurant. Ticket proceeds will go directly towards the Foodbank to help provide meals for those struggling with hunger in our community. A $75 ticket provides 214 meals, a $135 ticket provides 386 meals, and a $200 ticket provides 571 meals. A percentage of each ticket is tax-deductible, and that information will be provided to you in an emailed receipt.
