Taste of the Nation – It’s Where to Eat this Weekend

July 16th, 2010 Posted by Chefs, Culinary Connectors, Denver, restaurants No Comment yet

This weekend I encourage you to attend Taste of the Nation. Where else can we eat dishes made by our favorite chefs and help a worthy cause at the same time?

Sunday, July 18th chefs will descend on Mile High Station to donate their time and talent with one goal in mind – to raise critical funds needed to help end childhood hunger. This year 100% percent of the proceeds go to Share Our Strength, benefiting Operation Frontline Colorado, which teaches nutrition education, cooking skills and financial planning to low-income families and individuals in our community, as well as the Campaign to End Childhood Hunger in Colorado.

By the end of the year, nearly 17 million children in America will worry about when their next meal will come. That’s nearly one in four who are at risk of hunger, and who have limited or uncertain access to the nutritious foods they need.

As Matt Selby of Vesta Dipping Grill and Steubens has said of this year’s event, “It’s hard to argue with a statement like ‘no kid’ hungry. I’ve been actively involved with Share Our Strength for almost 20 years because I truly believe that solving many of our nations problems begins with letting children know, at an early age, that regardless of race, color, religion, whatever…that someone cares enough about their well being, and cares enough to work hard at feeding them a healthy meal.”

Participating restaurants include: Vesta Dipping Grill, Steubens, Encore, Jonesy’s Eat Bar, Venue, TAG, Strings, D Bar Desserts, Black Pearl, Elways Cherry Creek, Argyll, Duo and more. Mixologists and sommeliers will also be on hand to pour wine and serve cocktails.
