St. LOUIS (KTVI) - Sugarfire Smoke House will help fight food insecurity Thursday with a "H.A.M. Sandwich" and vegan ribs.

The sandwich special is named for Hunger Awareness Month. The restaurant will donate half of these sales to Food Outreach, which provides nutritional support for men, women and children living with HIV / AIDS in the St. Louis Metro area.

The effort is part of the Plant and Pig collaboration between the Sugarfire barbecue spot and Caryn "STLVegGirl" Dugan, a vegan blogger. Many Sugarfire fans may not know that the owner, Mike Johnson, was once a vegan himself. For carnivores, the "H.A.M. Sandwich" comes with ham, smoked gouda and chutney on raisin bread.
