MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Classrooms are empty across the state as school has officially ended for the summer.
For nearly a quarter of a million kids across the state, this means their meals and nutrition will take a big hit.
Well now, a couple of chefs are hoping to change that.
“Taste of the Nation Hotlist” supports Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry initiative.
This year’s event is Thursday at the Nicollet Island Pavilion and it will feature 30 of Minnesota’s hottest chefs and mixologists.
The money raised goes Share Our Strength Minneapolis, an organization that helps combat child hunger. SOS partners directly with Second Harvest Heartland and University of Minnesota’s Co-op Extension.
Chef Seth Bixby Daugherty, who brought Share Our Strength to Minnesota 11 years ago and is a true champion on Child Hunger in Minnesota, joined WCCO This Morning to discuss a special even to raise money for the program.
