It’s incredibly troubling to think that somewhere there is a hungry child. For those of us who are lucky enough to work in the food service industry, we never give this a thought. On February 27th Long Islands Top Chefs will be joining forces to fight childhood hunger at “The Chefs Table for No Kid Hungry”.
There will be a multi-course dinner to be held at Swallow Restaurant in Huntington Village on Monday, February 27th. Guests will enjoy a signature course from each chef, as well as cocktails and select wine pairings.
Proceeds from this special culinary collaboration will support NO KID HUNGRY, a campaign that works to ensure that every child in the United States has access to healthy food where they live, learn and play. Some of the chefs joining Swallow’s Executive Chef James are:
- Michael Psilakis (MP Taverna)
- Marc Anthony Bynum (Hush Bistro)
- Kent Monkan (Wild Goose)
- Stephan Bogardus (North Fork Table & Inn)
- Kate Snider (Cantine)
“I’m proud to have such talented chefs volunteering their time for this cause,” said Chef Tchinnis. “Together, we hope to raise awareness of the very real problem of childhood hunger, which impacts many children on Long Island. As a father, I’m committed to working with members of the community to address this important issue.”
13 million kids in America – one in five – struggle with hunger. On Long Island, nearly 284,000 people receive emergency food every year – that’s 65,000 people each week. More than one-third of these are children under 18. Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign is ending childhood hunger in this nation by connecting kids in need with nutritious food and teaching families how to cook healthy, affordable meals.
Tickets for the event are $200. For reservations and information, call 631-547-5388.
