A great meal should be part of every special celebration. Wynton Marsalis fans are invited to enjoy a New Orleans inspired meal and help Share Our Strength eradicate childhood hunger in America. Participating restaurants across the country are serving New Orleans inspired “specials” on their menus this week and will donate a portion of the proceeds to Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry program. The first 200 diners who order the special will also receive 5 free songs from Sony Music’s Swinging Into the 21st (released October 18, 2011)
