Chad Gauss, chef and owner of The Food Market in Hampden, will host a dinner to benefit Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry initiative next month.
The Nov. 14 dinner will feature multiple courses made by guest chefs including Aja Cage of Gunther & Co., The Corner Pantry's Neill Howell, Ben Lefenfeld of La Cuchara, Zack Mills of Wit & Wisdom and Aggio's Bryan Voltaggio.
The event will kick off at 6 p.m. with a cocktail reception and auction, followed by a seated dinner at 7 p.m.
Tickets, which range from $150 for individual guests to $10,000 for a "School Breakfast Hero" table of eight, are available through No Kid Hungry's website. All proceeds will go to No Kid Hungry, a program aimed at ending childhood hunger in the U.S.
Share Our Strength, a Washington, D.C.-based non-profit aiming to reduce childhood hunger, announced Wednesday it will grant Baltimore schools $200,000 for food service equipment to support an alternative breakfast plan.
Wit & Wisdom hosted an event, Chefs Behind Bars, to benefit No Kid Hungry this summer. Other local restaurants, including Petit Louis Bistro in Columbia, have held dinners and participated in national donation drives to raise money for the organization in the past.
