First-Ever Community FoodBank Chef Challenge

We’re hosting our first-ever Community FoodBank Chef Challenge at our Southern Branch on Thursday, April 20! Join us for an evening of fine foods and live entertainment, which will support our hunger-relief efforts.

Two acclaimed chefs – Kevin Kelly of Steve & Cookie’s by the Bay and Stephan Johnson of Dock’s Oyster House – will compete to create a world-class meal using a mystery basket of FoodBank ingredients. Celebrity judges include CEO of Alpha Funding Solutions Mark Callazzo, also of The Iron Room and The Atlantic City Bottle Company; Founder & President of Kismet Wines Mady Deininger; Food Network Star Finalist Nicole Gaffney; and Chopped Champion Nick Palamaro of Union Square Cafe. Our emcee for the evening will be the one and only Pat Croce!
