NO KID HUNGRY LITTLE ROCK
6 p.m. The Capital Hotel. $150-$550.
UPDATE: This event has been cancelled.
Here's a rare opportunity to indulge in a delectable gourmet meal while also helping out folks who otherwise might not know where their next meal is going to come from: the No Kid Hungry Dinner will benefit the nonprofit Share Our Strength, which seeks to ensure access to healthy food for kids who need it.
Share Our Strength supports school meals, cooking and nutrition programs and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, also known as SNAP. SNAP helps feed poor kids and low-income elderly folks and has recently been under attack by the Club for Growth's amoral errand boys in Congress, such as our own Tom Cotton.
But getting back to this fundraiser, for the price of a nice meal out, you can enjoy culinary creations from such figures as Donnie Ferneau, Brian Deloney of Maddie's Place, Kelli Marks of Sweet Love, John Currence of City Grocery in Oxford, Miss., Matthew Bell of South on Main and several others. In addition to the food, fellowship and cocktails, you can also bid on auction items.
