Touted as San Diego’s best culinary event, Mama’s Day, never ceases to amaze us with signature dishes from over 55 top local chefs, restaurants, and caterers. It’s one of the annual fundraising that we look forward to. Now in it’s 25th year, the event is held the Friday evening before Mother’s Day. The event was held at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla at Aventine and is often sprawled out around the pool area. The Hyatt staff did a wonderful job accommodating everyone indoors this year due to a couple of showers that hit San Diego throughout the day.
Mama’s Kitchen delivers three nutritional meals a day, seven days a week at no charge to men, women and children living with AIDS or cancer. Additionally, Mama’s Kitchen provides pantry services (Mama’s Pantry) and nutrition education to people affected by AIDS. Through these services, they are able to provide food, compassion and hope to over 1,400 people annually living throughout San Diego County.
