Chef Nick told us that it wasn't hard to convince the chefs to participate, "I think this is one of the things as a chef we deal with a lot. combating childhood hunger. It's one of the issues we make a stride in and really effect because we're around food all the time. It's really something that we can really help and push forward."
Nick also told us one in five kids across the country combat childhood hunger and one in three in the D.C. area. So childhood hunger is more prominent here
The local area food banks and Mary's Kitchen will benefit from the proceeds of the event.
