Celebrity Chef Brian Duffy Will Visit Princeton for `Send Hunger Packing’ Cooking Challenge

duffyCelebrity chef Brian Duffy from the hit show Bar Rescue will visit Princeton on Sunday, Sept. 14 to accept the Send Hunger Packing challenge to create an affordable, easy to prepare, nutritious and tasty meal with ingredients that are usually available to low-income families.

Duffy will also help local kids cook a meal of their own as a way of demonstrating the personal connection between cooking and nutrition.

The event, which is free and open to the public, will be held at the Community Park School from 3 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.  All event costs have been donated. The event is sponsored by Princeton Human Services, the Princeton Public Schools and Mercer Street Friends.

Send Hunger Packing Princeton  is hosting the event to raise awareness about child hunger in Princeton and local efforts to ensure that school children have the nutritional resources they need to succeed in school and life.

About 12 percent of the school population in Princeton, or about 420 children, qualify for free or reduced lunches during the school year. The Send Hunger Packing program provides free weekend meals for children to take home in backpacks.  Last year the program provided weekend meals for 88 percent of the  266 students in grades kindergarten through five, as well as  preschool children. As of May 2014, 5,522 weekend meal packs were delivered to students.
