One thing I love about the Denver food community is it's willingness to come together for a great cause. As you already know, I recently attented the Denver Burger Battle, a charitable event that benefits the Kossler Foundation. Today I have the absolute pleasure of sharing the news about Fill Plate for Hunger.

This event, which is backed by Denver's Union Station project, is set to take place in the Denver Botanical Gardens. Hopefully the weather has cleared out by Wednesday, but if it hasn't, I'm sure the setting will still be nothing short of spectacular. After having been to a few events there, I can assure you that it's quite the backdrop for something like this. Not only is the location something to revel, the spread will be top notch as well. Who's chipped in to serve up small plates of Denver goodness? Well, there's a few names you might recognize on the list, including: Billy’s Inn, Bistro Vendome, Corridor 44, Cru Wine Bar, LoHi Steakbar, Marco’s Coal Fired Pizzeria, Oceanaire, Ocean Prime, The Palm, Russell’s Smokehouse, Snooze, TAG, Tamayo and Ted’s Montana Grill. On top of all that, Central Bistro is providing the event’s whiskey tasting station. You might know by now that I have quite the affinity for that brown liquor, so you can safely assume I'll be spending ample time there.

Aside from the food, the amazing silent auction, and the events other notable sponsors, this event is really about benefiting an amazing orgainzation, We Dont Waste, an innovative provider of food for the hungry. If you're not familiar with the organization, take some time to get to know them. They're doing something much more creative than canned food drives. Check the video below to learn all about their incredible vision.
