(KSL News) Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker and some local restaurant owners teamed up today in hopes of making a dent in world hunger.

Becker signed a proclamation this morning at Squatters Pub Brewery declaring this Thursday "World Food Day."

On that day, participating restaurants will offer special menu items at reduced portion sizes that patrons can price themselves. All proceeds will go to local food-related charities.

"This is the first of its kind in the country and in the world. And I think our hope is that it is successful here, and that we build on our success this year, and that it spreads around the world, and that we really make a big dent in hunger around the world," Becker said.
