HEALTHY@HOME - NEW FOR 2019!

The Taste of St. Louis is so proud partner with local organizations, charities and movements that enrich the lives of so many St. Louisans. Our Healthy@Home area of the festival featured informative-yet-fun, family-friendly activities that give local hardworking entrepreneurs a platform to display their products, effort and ideas on the Family Kitchen Stage. Programming included presentations surrounding healthy snacking, ways to get your kids to help with meal preparation, simple gardening, eating to “fuel up” and more!

While Taste will always be a place to enjoy gourmet food and cocktails, our other main focus is to educate and promote healthy eating habits and lifestyles, preparation and food distribution.

  • All American Gymnastics, super ninja course
