This one will definitely have a positive effect on your heart!

Chef Seamus Mullen (behind Tertulia restaurant in NYC) and chef Hugh Mangum (who owns the multiple Mighty Quinn's Barbecue) dropped by the kitchen to talk about a cause very dear to them — and Rachael: ending child hunger.

And to do it, they're both cycling 300 miles!

As part of Chefs Cycle, Hugh explains, "Seamus, myself and about 250-plus [275 total!] of our colleagues — chef friends — we're riding 300 miles in Santa Rosa, California, in May." (It’s a 3-day tour starting May 15 and ending May 17.)

Their goal, he says, is to raise $2.4 million — which will offer 24 million meals to kids in need.

"The end game," he adds, "is that this problem — childhood hunger in America — it goes away. It's a solvable problem."

"It should be eradicated — well within our lifetimes," says Rachael.

Hugh agrees: "Especially in the country we live in."

Want to help? As Hugh and Seamus explained, you can go to either NoKidHungry.org, a nonprofit working to end child hunger in America and a partner, or ChefsCycle.org and search for either of their names. Or you can make a general donation to the cause on the site.
