You asked, and we listened! For two years, The Salvation Army presented Taste of Biloxi, which turned into a tremendous success. Restaurants all over South Mississippi requested to participate in the event to show their support of The Salvation Army. This meant we were going beyond our “Taste of Biloxi” name, but we had an easy solution –  include restaurants and sponsors from all six counties we serve and call the event, “Taste of South Mississippi!”

This evening of fun and fellowship gives our 300+ guests a chance to   explore The Salvation Army Ray and Joan Kroc Community Center while dining on heavy hors d’oeuvres from the best restaurants South Mississippi has to offer and bidding on silent auction items.


Where do Proceeds Go?

All proceeds from Taste of South Mississippi stay right here in our community and go directly to The Salvation Army’s youth programs. This includes helping children with school supplies, clothing and food; providing opportunities for youth to participate in sports, art classes, youth camp, swimming, and more. Plus, The Salvation Army Kroc Center has an open door policy where no one is turned away due to an inability to pay.  Therefore, your donation will benefit children who otherwise could not join.  The scholarship fund allows them to enjoy every aspect of The Salvation Army Kroc Center, from the recreation center, pool, art and music classes, as well as all other programs offered to children.

What to Expect:

Dine on some of the Gulf Coast’s top restaurants, bid on silent auction items, take photos in the photo booth and enjoy an evening that benefits the youth we help at The Salvation Army Mississippi Gulf Coast.
