Twentieth Annual Chefs’ Dinner

This year’s Chefs’ Dinner will feature a multi-course dinner prepared by several of the finest chefs in Houston. For 800,000 Houstonians each year, however, fine dining is something much simpler, though no less appreciated – a meal made from food provided by Houston Food Bank partner agencies. While their meals may not be fancy, they are wholesome and provide essential nutrients to the families and individuals who receive them.

  19th Annual Chefs’ Dinner

The 19th Annual Chefs’ Dinner, held on April 17th at The Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa raised a record-breaking amount of $360,710 for the Houston Food Bank. The Food Bank is grateful for the leadership of our chairs, the gracious hospitality of The Houstonian, and the chefs who contributed all the ingredients for their courses. Funds from this record-breaking year will provide more than 1,082,130 meals to help our neighbors.

Dates for our 20th Annual Chefs’ Dinner have yet to be released.
