One in five children in this country struggles with hunger, including more than 247,560 Maryland children. Using proven, practical, solutions, No Kid Hungry is ending childhood hunger today by ensuring that kids start the day with a nutritious breakfast and families learn the skills they need to shop and cook on a budget. Already, No Kid Hungry and its partners have connected kids struggling with hunger with more than 460 million additional meals.
The Food Market in Hampden, will host a No Kid Hungry Dinner presented by Citi. The multi-course dinner will benefit No Kid Hungry‘s work to end childhood hunger in America.
Event chair Amy Langrehr of Charm City Cook says, "School breakfast, summer meals, and nutrition education are three of the areas where No Kid Hungry programs focus to make sure kids get the nuttrion they need - all the time, not just at lunch at school. Chad felt that hosting a No Kid Hungry dinner was the next natural step" in supporting causes that matter to him.
The dinner will feature nationally renowned guest chefs Aja Cage (Gunther & Co.), Neill Howell (The Corner Pantry), Ben Lefenfeld (La Cuchara), Zack Mills (Wit & Wisdom), and Bryan Voltaggio (Aggio), all united for a cause: making sure all children in this country have the healthy food they need, every day.
The dinner will be preceded by a cocktail reception and will feature a live auction in which guests can bid on a variety of luxury culinary items. All proceeds from the event support No Kid Hungry’s work to end childhood hunger across the country and right here in Maryland.
All proceeds will go towards funding No Kid Hungry's work in Maryland. For event specifics and to purchase tickets, please go to NKH Baltimore.
