Grab your fork and get ready for a fantastic food experience that will make your stomach happy while helping others.

A Taste for Change: The Right to Food supports the Shriver Center’s work to reduce hunger by improving access to SNAP benefits (formerly food stamps) and other nutrition programs relied on by millions of families and children in Illinois and across the U.S. DJ Megan Taylor will turn out sweet sounds while guests sip beer, wine and cocktails and mingle over delectable dishes such as Acanto’s Amberjack aigre-dolce with crisp panelle, guanciale, and huckleberry; EL Ideas’ signature French fries and frosty; and Bittersweet’s Passion fruit meringues, vanilla sour cream cheesecake squares, and chocolate peanut butter torte. The benefit will feature remarks by Chef Judson Todd Allen of Healthy Infused Cuisine, a passionate advocate for ending childhood obesity and changing the way people think and feel about healthier foods. A raffle will offer guests the chance to win luxurious dining, spa services, and other prizes.

Participating restaurants include Acanto, Bittersweet, Chocolat Uzma Sharif, Defloured, Dia De Los Tamales, EL Ideas, Farmhouse, Green Zebra, Hutch, Lyfe Kitchen, Pops for Champagne, Table Donkey and Stick, Tango Sur, Upton’s Breakroom, and Vera.
