Food and literacy are two of our favorite things here at the City Paper, for without these things our lives would be sad and empty. But in the Lowcountry, illiteracy and hunger are an ongoing, life-threatening challenge for many people.
Fortunately, well-fed and well-read people like the folks at Halls Chophouse are willing to rally for the cause. This week, Halls will host a prix-fixe lunch to raise funds for Charleston Volunteers for Literacy, a group that aims to stop the problem early by helping elementary school children struggling to learn to read.
Tickets to the lunch, prepared by Chef Matthew Niessner, must be purchased in advance by visiting letsdolunchincharleston.com. In addition, the shops, showrooms, restaurants, and hotels of King Street have donated special items to be raffled off during the luncheon.
