Visit chef Tony Maws’s Inman Square restaurant at 1 p.m. for the Boston Food Fight: February Fry-Off, which benefits No Kid Hungry, a national campaign from Share Our Strength, a nonprofit that combats hunger and poverty for kids worldwide.

A worthy crew will fire up their fryers to compete: Craigie on Main’s Nick Anichini, Tiger Mama’s Ellie Campbell, The Table at Season to Taste’s Carl Dooley, and Highland Fried’s Mark Romano. Sample them all, and decide who has the finest fry.
