Organizers of the Taste of the Nation in Toledo have restructured the event to become a community gala where 100% of all proceeds stay local. Now called The Zest of Toledo, this charitable effort will plan ZesToledo, an annual event that brings the chef and food industry communities together to benefit people in need of food, shelter and education. All of the proceeds will go to grant recipients that will use the monies distributed to benefit their missions In Northwest Ohio. ZesToledo will be held at 5pm on Sunday, April 29 in the Renaissance Hotel Ballroom Downtown. The local wine and food tasting, highlighting many local restaurants, will also feature an original art raffle from NW Ohio artists and local bands, including The Bridges. For ticket information contact Marla Schecht at email@example.com or – Facebook The Zest of Toledo.
