Food Fight: February 18, 2021

Food Fight Save the Date

Food Fight 2020 was a success thanks to your support. We are already looking forward to another great event next year. Mark your calendar and join us!

This Food Network inspired event begins with a live auction for a cooking spot in the chef competition and two judge spots. Once the battle begins the chefs have 45 minutes to make an entrée with a bag of secret ingredients. It’s a fun social event where you get to taste signature items from all the chefs. Food Fight proceeds help support our meal programs, like Meals on Wheels, Critters Meals on Wheels, After School Meals, and Summer Meals for Kids.
