A dinner for two on April 27 at the Red Lion hotel will go a long way to help fight homelessness and hunger in Salt Lake. The hotel will join 60 others across the country who have banded together as Share Our Strength to host a "Taste of the Nation."

Everything is being donated by the hotel, local restaurants and supply companies, according to John Harris, head chef at the hotel and community services coordinator for the Salt Lake Chefs Association.All of the money raised by this gourmet buffet will be distributed to relief agencies. Eighty percent of local proceeds will go to the Salt Lake Foodbank and Community Services Council.

The event will be held from 6-8 p.m. at the Red Lion, 255 S. West Temple. The cost is $15 per plate. For information or reservations, call 328-2000.
