Itching to do some good as the harvest season approaches? Mark this date on your calendars.
On Monday, Oct. 3 beginning at 6 p.m., Easy Tyger, along with six of Milwaukee’s best restaurants, will serve up delicious eats to benefit for the Hunger Task Force.
During the event, which will be held at Easy Tyger, 1230 E. Brady St., attendees can mingle and enjoy small plate entrees from restaurants including Buckley’s, Carnevor, Easy Tyger, Hinterland, Maxie's, Karl Ratzsch’s and Wolf Peach.
Tickets, which include food from all seven restaurants and one free drink, are just $50 each and can be purchased at Easy Tyger or any of the participating restaurants.
All ticket and bar sales generated during the evening will be donated to the Hunger Task Force.
Other ways to support the cause
Can’t make it to the benefit? Here’s two additional ways to support Hunger Task Force at Easy Tyger during the month of September:
Donate food! Beginning mid-September there will be a bin in the restaurant to collect nonperishable food items for Hunger Task Force. Preferred items include canned fruit and juice; breakfast items including cereal, oatmeal and pancake mix; high protein foods including peanut butter, canned meats, canned beans and stews; canned vegetables; infant formula and baby food; dinner items including pasta, macaroni and cheese and potato mixes; and lunch items including canned soup and pasta.
Drink a cocktail! Todd Hasselbacher has also brewed up a very special sweet corn cocktail made with house-infused black pepper vodka, which will be served throughout the month of September. Proceeds from the sale of the cocktail ($8) will be donated to Hunger Task Force.
