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. There are 50 seats available and tickets are $200 per person. Reservations can be made at http://ce.strength.org/events/no-kid-hungry-dinner-new-canaan.
Chef Brian Lewis, who dedicates one Saturday a month to educating children about seasonal cuisine in his "Lil Foodies" events, jumped at the opportunity to host a fundraiser for Share Our Strength.
“Ensuring that our country’s youth are fed and receive the nutrition they need is a cause I am grateful to be able to support,” says Lewis. “Children are our future and while elm is dedicated to providing food education, the reality is that many children are distracted from learning all over America because they are hungry. As culinary professionals, my team and our guest chefs have been looking forward to bringing our community together to support Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry campaign through this incredible evening."
