The event is bringing together about 50 local restaurants and beverage purveyors to showcase samples of food and drink, right in the warehouse of the Food Bank itself. If you've never visited their facility, it's quite impressive, and you can truly see the impact of your donation at work.
For a full list of participating restaurants, please visit their website. Here are a few of my favorites that will be there:
The Food Bank also provided me with a sneak peek at some of the dishes that will be served:
