In some ancient cultures, salt was a rare commodity that was given to guests as a sign of hospitality and friendship, creating a bond between guest and host. At Saltyard they strive to make this human connection between what is on the plate and the long-standing relationships with friends, farms, artisanal purveyors and their neighbors. Saltyard offers cuisine as diverse as the city itself – a carefully edited selection of Chef Nick Leahy's seasonal, small-plate dishes without pretention.  Have a fun and relaxing night with Chef Nick as he demonstrates a selection of small-plates.

Inspired by scripture from the prophet Isaiah, “to share your food with the hungry”, Atlanta’s Jewish Community holds their metro-wide food drive each year during the High Holy Days. 

Outnumber Hunger is an initiative that makes it easy for people to join in the fight against hunger in their own communities.  Specially marked food packages direct consumers to enter codes online at www.OutnumberHunger.com to help Feeding America secure meals for the Atlanta Community Food Bank.  For every code entered by March 1, 2014, Outnumber Hunger will donate $0.65 – enough to secure five meals on behalf of local food banks. 

Each spring, Publix Super Markets customers can donate at the register to provide food for hungry families.  As a token of appreciation, customers making a donation will receive a special Food for Sharing reusable bag. 

Join us as Atlanta's most fashionable come together to fight hunger in honor of Hunger Action Month. Enjoy food, fun & fashion and support a great cause! Presented by Bloomingdale's.
