Want to enjoy a delicious meal for a fantastic cause? On Monday, March 27, the Massachusetts Restaurant Association will partner with Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign for multiple restaurant-hosted charitable events in support of the latter’s “Cooking Matters” initiative. Cobblestones of Lowell will once again be the Merrimack Valley host location, having raised over $13,000 for low-income families in the Bay State at last year’s event.
The evening begins with a cocktail reception at 6 p.m., followed by a multicourse seated dinner carefully paired with Winebow brand wines at 7 p.m. This year’s menu theme is “home cooked,” as interpreted by a number of talented cooks from the Merrimack Valley. Participating chefs include Bill Park of Cobblestones and Adam Hervieux of moonstones, as well as a number of others from area restaurants including Evviva Cucina, Burtons Grill, NoLo Bistro & Bar and Sweet Lydia’s.
Tickets are $125 per person and can be purchased at CobblestonesOfLowell.com. Donations in higher amounts can be made for recognition as a “Summer Meals Supporter” ($500) or “Afterschool Meals Friend” ($1000) on the event website.
As part of Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign, Cooking Matters helps low-income families across the country to shop for and cook healthy meals on a budget. In Massachusetts, Cooking Matters serves families through hands-on, six-week cooking courses and interactive grocery store tours. Participants learn to shop smarter, use nutritional information to make healthier choices, and cook delicious, affordable meals.
