Capitol Hill, sweet potato pizza and Chef Spike Mendelsohn

ONE members, staffers and supporters gathered at Chef Spike Mendelsohn’s restaurant We, The Pizza on Capitol Hill for World Food Day last week. ONE CEO Michael Elliott and ONE Mom Community Partner Stacey Ferguson joined Chef Spike, a former Top Chef contestant, to discuss the value of nutrition.

Guests were able to sample his new sweet potato recipes, a sweet potato pizza and a unique sweet potato milkshake, created especially for World Food Day. Before wrapping up, Spike asked everyone to take out their phones and tweet our campaign request to Secretary Clinton.

Here are some photos from the event:
