Taste of Mississippi – Jackson – Monday, April 11, 2022 at The District at Eastover

Taste of Mississippi is a tasting event that offers culinary delights from fabulous area restaurants and beverages from local distributors, with a competition among participating restaurants for Best Appetizer, Best Entrée, Best Dessert, Best Presentation, and People’s Choice. For over thirty years, this event has garnered local and statewide support from restaurants who simply enjoy supporting Stewpot in its mission to feed, clothe, and shelter individuals who are homeless and in need.

All proceeds from Taste of Mississippi benefit Stewpot Community Services, whose mission is to provide for the needs of the poor, elderly, and disabled in Jackson’s metro area.

In 2019, this event raised more than $110,000 for Stewpot’s ministries.

The event will be held on April 11, 2022, 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. at The District at Eastover


If you are looking for a way to contribute to Stewpot for the 2022 tax year, you can do so by mailing a check to:
