Chefs Tableside Dinner

Header that says Chefs Tableside Dinner

Chefs Tableside Dinner supports the FoodBank’s mission to provide food, help and hope. The event begins with a cocktail reception and silent auction, followed by a unique five-course gourmet dinner prepared by acclaimed New Jersey chefs with wine pairings. All proceeds benefit CFBNJ to fight hunger in our state.

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are not able to host the annual Chef’s Tableside Dinner in 2020. However, we look forward to seeing you in the fall of 2021!

Chefs Tableside Dinner 2019

This year’s Chefs Tableside Dinner exceeded our imagination. More than $146,000 was raised for the Community FoodBank of New Jersey to continue providing Food, Help and Hope to our neighbors in need. It was a true special, creative and collaborative endeavor throughout the community. With the advocacy and support of all involved, we can end hunger together.
