Feed Yourself To Help Feed Others

There's been plenty of attention lately to childhood obesity, yet not so much on the one in four children in the U.S. who go hungry each day. Share Our Strength's Taste of the Nation is in its 23rd year of raising funds to provide healthy nutrition for these children so they can focus on learning instead of wondering when hunger pangs will go away. Atlanta's annual event takes place Thursday, April 14 at the Georgia Aquarium and will honor chefs, like Aria Executive Chef/Owner Gerry Klaskala, who have supported Taste of the Nation Atlanta for 10 years or more. More than 50 of Atlanta's top restaurants will be on hand with flavorful dishes and wonderful wines including Aqua blue, Aria, Davio's Northern Italian Steakhouse, Marlow's Tavern and Woodfire Grill. You can still purchase tickets online for the big night and know that while you're enjoying yourself you're helping local kids through the Atlanta Community Food Bank, Share Our Strength's Cooking Matters and Genesis, a New Life. General admission is $250 for the 7:30 - 10:00 p.m. gala. VIP ticket purchasers ($350 per person) enter at 6:30 p.m. for the preview party.
