CHARLESTON, SC (WCBD) – Cooking for a cause! The Lowcountry Food Bank is teaming up with chefs in an effort to prevent childhood hunger.
The annual Lowcountry Food Bank Chefs’ Feast funds childhood hunger programs. Since its inception in 1999, it has raised more than $2.7 million, allowing the Lowcountry food bank to provide more than 16 million meals to Lowcountry children.
The 2019 Chef’s Feast is our 20th annual event!! Chef Bob Carter created a legacy by hosting the first Chefs’ Feast twenty years ago that would showcase Charleston’s best chefs and raise much-needed resources to provide for food children who struggle with hunger in our community.
2019 Chefs’ Feast takes place on Sunday, February 10 at the North Charleston Convention Center. Chefs’ Feast is an annual collaboration between the Lowcountry Food Bank about 30 (thirty) of the area’s most celebrated chefs who offer up delectable bites to raise funds to fight childhood hunger in the ten coastal counties of South Carolina that we serve.
For the second consecutive year, the Chefs’ Feast lead chef this year is Jacques Larson, Executive Chef at The Obstinate Daughter and Wild Olive. Chef Jacques is passionate about helping fight hunger.
1 in 5 children in coastal South Carolina suffers from food insecurity. Nearly 50% of the people the Lowcountry Food Bank serves are children and seniors. Research shows that children with regular access to nutritious food have higher grades and test scores, better attendance and improved behavior in school.
