No child in should grow up hungry in America, but one in five children struggles with hunger. Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign is ending childhood hunger in this nation by connecting kids in need with nutritious food and teaching families how to cook healthy, affordable meals. You can help surround kids with the nutritious food they need where they live, learn and play.
Bryce Shuman, originally from Chapel Hill, NC moved to San Francisco, California to hone his skills as a chef. Working first for Wolfgang Puck at Postrio and then for Stuart Brioza and Nicole Krasinski at Rubicon, Bryce learned the importance of cooking with the finest ingredients and always from the heart. Upon returning to the east coast he joined Daniel Humm’s team at Eleven Madison Park in New York City. During his six years there as Sous Chef and Executive Sous Chef, the restaurant garnered four stars from the New York Times, three Michelin Stars, as well at a top 5 placement on The Worlds 50 Best. As Executive Chef at Betony, Bryce has earned three stars from The New York Times, one Michelin star, and was a 2015 Food & Wine “Best New Chef”. When not at Betony, Bryce likes to spend time with his loving wife and two and a half year old daughter, Emilia. He also collects analog synthesizers, plays blues guitar, and snaps instant photographs with his vintage Polaroid Reporter SE.
Eamon Rockey is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America where he received his Bachelor’s Degree in Culinary Management. For over ten years, he has worked in service, management and beverage-centric positions at some of New York City’s most highly regarded restaurants including Gilt, Eleven Madison Park, Atera, and Aska. Most recently as the General Manager of Betony, and COO of the North American branch of its parent company Maison-Dellos, Eamon spearheaded the restaurant’s critically acclaimed cocktail program, renowned for its milk punches.
Born & bred in New York, Thomas studied neurobiology and classical piano at Cornell University, and all the while worked in restaurants to pay-off his student loans. In January 2011, Thomas diverted from his path toward a medical career, and took on the role of Wine Director at Chef Tom Colicchio’s restaurant Colicchio & Sons in New York City, and would soon thereafter join Chef Daniel Humm and the team behind the world-renowned Eleven Madison Park to create The NoMad in Spring 2012. He opened The NoMad as its Wine Director & helped it achieve its 3-Star New York Times rating within a few months of its opening. Thomas was chosen as one of the Best New Sommeliers of 2012 by Wine & Spirits Magazine, recognized as one of Forbes' 30 Under 30 in 2013, and was most recently named one of Food & Wine’s Sommeliers of the Year of 2015. Most recently, Thomas has gotten into the world of winemaking, and has launched two exciting new wine labels: Terrassen in 2013, and Empire Estate in 2014, both with a focus on New York's exciting upstate wine region, the Finger Lakes.
