Easy Ice, the only ice machine subscription service with a national presence, announced today that they will serve as Local Silver Sponsors for Share our Strength’s Taste of the Nation® events in Washington, DC, New York City, Miami and Baltimore. One hundred percent of proceeds from the annual culinary fundraisers benefits Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry® campaign to end childhood hunger in America.
“We wouldn’t be able to put on our Taste of the Nation events without corporate sponsors like Easy Ice,” said Patty Gentry, Sr. Operations Manager, Culinary Events, Share our Strength. “Ice is a vital piece of our culinary events and we’re thrilled to have Easy Ice providing us with the many thousands of pounds of ice our chefs and mixologists need to make the events succeed.”
Since 1988, Taste of the Nation events have been the nation’s premier series of tasting benefits dedicated to making sure no kid grows up hungry. Every year, the country’s best chefs, sommeliers and mixologists join together at more than 30 events across the country to raise the critical funds needed to support the No Kid Hungry campaign’s work to ensure that all children in America get the healthy food they need, every day.
“Our support of Share Our Strength is a perfect fit for both our head and our heart,” says John Mahlmeister, CMO and co-founder of Easy Ice. “We eliminate the hassles of owning an ice machine for business owners so they can focus on their business, and Share Our Strength takes hunger off the table so children can do what they do best – learning, laughing, loving….just being a kid.”
Taste of the Nation Washington, DC was held on 3/31 and the New York City event will take place on 4/28/14 respectively. The exact dates for the TOTN events in Miami and Baltimore have yet to be determined, but those events will occur in July and October, respectively.
