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.
