All-star Share Our Strength dinner with Chef Michael Paley on 7/15

On Monday, July 15th, Chef Kevin Nashan of Sidney Street Cafe in St. Louis will host some of the Midwest’s most celebrated chefs for an all-star dinner and auction to benefit Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign. The event brings Chicago’s Stephanie Izard (Girl & The Goat) and Jason Vincent (Nightwood) together with Cincinnati’s Michael Paley (Metropole) and St. Louis’ Gerard Craft (Niche), Kevin Willmann (Farmaus), and Nashan, to prepare a multi-course dinner for a cause essential to our nation’s health: ending childhood hunger in America.

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. The cocktail reception starts at 6:00 p.m. with dinner seating at 7:00 pm. Purchase options are $10,000 for a table of 10, $5,000 for a table of 6, and individual tickets are $150 per person.

“More than 16 million children in America don’t have enough food to eat and are going hungry,” says Kevin Nashan. “As a father and chef, this is a cause close to my heart and I’m honored to share my kitchen with some of the Midwest’s brightest culinary talents who also feel passionately about ending childhood hunger, and look forward to an incredible evening.”
