September is HUNGER ACTION Month

What Is Hunger Action Month? (from FeedingAmerica.Org)
September is Hunger Action Month, when the Feeding America nationwide network of food banks unites to urge individuals to take action in their communities. It is our opportunity to create a movement that has a real and lasting impact on our mission to help end hunger in America.

Wear Orange for Hunger Action Month!HUNGER ACTION DAY:
On September 5, 2013, Feeding America kick off a month-long effort to turn the nation orange in support of hunger-relief. We encourage everyone to play a role and show your support by wearing orange! We’ll be sporting orange No Kid Hungry glasses and bracelets!

Please join L.A. Bites Hunger in supporting the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, No Kid Hungry and Feeding America

As individuals, charities, businesses and government, we all have a role to play in getting food to those in need.

Taste Of The Nation – 2009 Tix On Sale!

I just purchased my ticket to Taste of the Nation 2009, and wanted to share a few photos from last year’s event. If you’ve never been before, it’s a great opportunity to taste wonderful food from many of our top L.A. restaurants.

My favorite part (besides all the food) was chatting with the chefs in a relaxed, fun atmosphere… all while supporting Share Our Strength’s fight to end childhood hunger. It’s a “fill up and feel good” event for sure!

From the Share Our Strength Website:

“Share Our Strength’s Taste of the Nation is the nation’s premier culinary benefit, featuring top chefs and mixologists — all of whom are coming together to donate their time, talent and passion to end childhood hunger in America.

Come join us for an afternoon in Culver City, enjoy a strolling buffet, entertainment, live auction and much more. Join us as we work to create a hunger-free generation. 100% of ticket sales benefits Share Our Strength’s fight to end childhood hunger.”
