About

AN UPDATE ON CORONAVIRUS AND OUR CULINARY EVENTS

For more than thirty years, the restaurant industry has fueled our work to connect those at risk of hunger with the meals they need. Now, in this time of unprecedented uncertainty, we’re directing support to our culinary community. So while we look forward to rescheduling our next No Kid Hungry Dinner, we’d love for you to consider supporting chefs now by either ordering take-out or purchasing a gift card to use at a later date.

Want to know what’s currently being offered in your neighborhood? Check out this culinary supporter map to find a local eatery that is open for take-out near you. We are staying in touch with our No Kid Hungry Chef Champs, so if you have any questions, feel free to email Cara at cbender@strength.org.

Night Out for No Kid Hungry is a multi-course dinner featuring nationally renowned chefs preparing your meal table-side. Dinner will be preceded by a cocktail reception and will feature a live auction in which guests can bid on a variety of unique culinary experiences.

A note about Donor Advised Funds

Please note that the IRS prohibits the use of Donor Advised Funds where more than an incidental benefit is received by the donor in return (e.g. event table/tickets, purchase of auction items). This prohibition applies regardless of whether the donor pays separately for the benefits received (i.e. the “non-deductible” amount). All table/ticket and auction purchases, therefore, must be funded personally outside of a Donor Advised Fund. For further guidance, please consult with your Donor Advised Fund administrator.
