I recently produced this Mommy Minute segment about 'Lil Foodies' in New Canaan, a weekend workshop that encourages kids to love farm fresh food and eat better meals.
According to a press release, the well-known chef who came up with this concept, Brian Lewis, is also involved in an upcoming fundraiser:
Chef Brian Lewis, owner of acclaimed elm restaurant, is hosting a spectacular seated dinner featuring Connecticut’s most celebrated chefs, Carey Savona of Heirloom, Geoff Lazlo of The Whelk, and guest sommelier Jeff Barbour of New Canaan Wine Merchants. They will all join forces on Monday, September 30th to prepare a multi-course meal and wine pairing to benefit Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry® campaign. The cocktail reception starts at 6 p.m. with dinner beginning at 7 p.m.
Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign is ending childhood hunger in this nation by ensuring all children get the healthy food they need, every day. Today, one in five children in this country struggles with hunger. When kids get the food they need, they feel better, they learn more and they grow up stronger. The good news is that, together, we can make that happen.
Guests of this philanthropic dinner will also have the opportunity to participate in auctions that include one-of-a-kind culinary, travel and lifestyle items. Since 2005, No Kid Hungry dinners have raised nearly $7 million to support the No Kid Hungry campaign, ensuring that kids across the U.S. have access to the nutritious food they need to lead healthy, active lives.
