How It Began:

The Taste of Gwinnett is a student-led endeavor. In 2017, the Relay for Life of Gwinnett, the biggest Relay for Life event in the entire world, was canceled due to severe weather. A few students at the Gwinnett School of Mathematics Science & Technology, a high school in Lawrenceville, were heartbroken by this and wanted to do something that would uplift the community and help Relay for Life. With an idea in mind and a limitless passion, we founded Taste the Charity, Inc

We didn’t make any progress at first. We spent hundreds of hours going door-to-door to try to obtain restaurants and sponsors for our event. However, after seeing how much work our organization was putting into this cause, prominent members of the community, such as political representatives and salesmen, started to mentor us and guide us on the right track. Since then, the Taste of Gwinnett has been developing rapidly, and we’re gaining new allies every day. While we’re just a group of high school students, we’re excited for the day all our hard work comes to fruition.
