Some of New York City’s top chefs and restaurateurs, including Danny Meyer (Shake Shack), Anita Lo (Annisa), Amanda Cohen (Dirt Candy), and Daniel Holzman (The Meatball Shop) are getting together for one night for an incredibly important cause: putting an end to childhood hunger in America. The annual Night Out for No Kid Hungry event will take place this year at 23 Wall Street on April 27, with food from these chefs, among others. Proceeds will benefit the No Kid Hungry nonprofit, which is devoted to eradicating childhood hunger.
“As a restaurateur/chef, I believe the culinary community has the power to make a difference in the lives of the 16 million U.S. kids who struggle with hunger,” chef Anita Lo told The Daily Meal. Chef Lo will serve Pakora-fried oysters with cucumber and yogurt, slow-cooked wild king salmon with maitake, and pan-roasted moulard duck breast. “We feed people every day for a living, and by partnering with No Kid Hungry, we can help to feed millions of healthy meals like school breakfast to children in need, every day.”
The rest of the attending personalities, chefs, and restaurateurs include ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos, Bryce Shuman and Eamon Rockey (Betony), Chris Jaeckle (all'onda), chef JJ Johnson (The Cecil), Sarah Simmons (Birds & Bubbles), Ryan Hardy (Charlie Bird), Jesse Schenker (The Gander), and Dale Talde (Pork Slope).
