Enjoy something spectacular so kids can get
|Even in the world’s wealthiest nation, nearly 17 million children worry about where their next meal will come from. That’s nearly one in four children at risk of hunger, with limited access to the basic nutrition they need to develop to their full potential.
Last night, Share Our Strength’s Taste Of The Nation tour launched in Charlotte, NC and Manchester, NH. It continues to 25 other cities from now through the end of June.
Billed as “the nation’s premier event to end childhood hunger in America,” the event raises money by serving affluent food enthusiasts elegant fare from top chefs.
Food, drink and services are donated, so 100% of ticket sales support Share Our Strength’s programs.
In Philadelphia, one of the tour cities, 24.5% of residents live below the poverty line and 260,000 people are “at risk for hunger.”
|That’s why those who can afford as much food as they’d like—and who appreciate the best food—are encouraged to take part.
We won’t list all 25 cities here, but see if your city is on the tour and purchase tickets at Share Our Strength/Taste Of The Nation.
You can also make a donation directly or in someone’s name. Maybe that’s what Mom would really prefer for Mother’s Day (May 9th).
