One in five children in this country struggles with hunger. No Kid Hungry is ending childhood hunger in this nation by ensuring that kids start the day with a nutritious breakfast and families learn the skills they need to shop and cook on a budget. Already, No Kid Hungry and its partners have connected kids struggling with hunger with 460 million meals.
This special BBQ is being held to support No Kid Hungry’s Chef’s Cycle fundraiser, in which Michael Hung and his team partner Abby Gavino will join nearly 200 chefs and restaurant industry professionals, who are committed to riding their bikes 300 miles to help ensure that all kids get the healthy food they need, every day.
