Share Our Strength works to end hunger and poverty in the United States and abroad by bringing together industries and individuals to create community wealth and promote awareness. Its annual Taste of the Nation event comprises more than 4,000 of the country's best and most innovative restaurants in over 70 cities, serving up delicious dishes to help end childhood hunger.
Chef-restaurateur Mary Sue Milliken is organizing this year's event, which hits Los Angeles on June 24. Mary Sue shares information about about local organizations that are helping hungry families and previews this year's tasty event (including Evan Kleiman's Angeli Caffe and KCRW's Jason Bentley as guest DJ!).
Mary Sue Milliken and her partner Susan Feniger own the Border Grill
restaurants and Ciudad downtown.
