The fundraiser will be held at Atlas Performing Arts Center at 1333 H St. NE from 6 to 10 p.m. Sunday.

The annual festival raises money for J.O. Wilson Elementary School at 660 K St. NE with silent and live auctions. The event is hosted by Friends of J.O. Wilson, a group that raises money for the school in which three quarters of students qualify for free meals.

In the past, money raised at Taste of H has gone into teacher training, field trips and extra-curricular activities and new technology, according to a press release from Friends of J.O. Wilson.

This year’s festival will include food from 15 restaurants along the H Street corridor, including Ben’s Chili Bowl, The Queen Vic, Addis Ethiopian Restaurant, DC Harvest and Dangerously Delicious Pies. There will also be an extensive silent auction and live auction featuring everything from jewelry to a week-long beach vacation.

Tickets to the event range in price from $45 to $75 and can be purchased online.
