On April 11, five restaurants across Massachusetts will be participating in Massachusetts Restaurant Day for No Kid Hungry. Inspired by Chef Andy Husbands of Tremont 647, who has hosted a dinner for this important cause for the past 19 years; the MRA announced its expansion throughout the state. The event will consist of a multi-course meal at one of five Massachusetts Restaurants, and all ticket proceeds will go to benefit No Kid Hungry’s Nutrition Education program in Massachusetts.

Participating restaurants include: Tremont 647 (Boston), One Eleven Chop House (Worcester), Quarterdeck (Falmouth), Cobblestones of Lowell (Lowell), and East Bay Grille (Plymouth).

One in five children in the U.S. does not get the food they need. Sixteen million kids struggle with hunger every day. Childhood hunger is a problem in the U.S that should not exist, and The Massachusetts Restaurant Association is partnering with Share Our Strength and their No Kid Hungry Campaign to help provide all children in Massachusetts with access to nutritious, healthy food options.
