Hunger has become a hot topic in the charitable world. From chefs (such as hometown hero Clay Conley) to musicians to actors to athletes, everyone seems to be talking about those who are much less fortunate than the rest of us.

If you haven't gotten the memo: One out of every six Americans, including children, is at risk of going hungry.

To do its part, Shula's on the Beach has teamed up with Taste of the NFL to host a fundraising event tonight -- don't worry, it's not going to break the bank.

From 6 to 7 p.m., the restaurant will be pairing food, wine, and football in an attempt to raise money for Hunger in America.

For $20 per person, the event features wines from multiple wineries. For an additional $10 donation, guests are invited to join the Tasting Challenge, which pits winos against one another in a blind tasting.

As part of a nationwide series of events in football cities across the country, NFL teams are pairing up with local residents and restaurants to offer a variety of Taste of the NFL events.

According to Westin Beach Resort & Spa's marketing manager, Heather Williams, "our location had not yet participated with the organization, so we are very excited to partner with the Taste of the NFL to raise awareness and money towards the fight against hunger."

Since 1992, the Taste of the NFL has brought together great chefs with leading NFL players and members to raise money for food backs. The yearly efforts peak at the Super Bowl's Party With a Purpose that takes place on the eve of the big game. As the most charitable event of the Super Bowl, Taste of the NFL continually helps to feed 37 million hungry people.

Shula's on the Beach is located at 321 N. Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd. in Fort Lauderdale. Call 954-355-4000, or visit mylesrestaurantgroup.com
