Eighteenth Annual Chefs’ Dinner

Reception 6:30 p.m.
Dinner 7:00 p.m.

John and Vicki Crum
Jose and Teresa Ivo

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.



Tickets for the 2018 Chefs’ Dinner are sold out. Please contact Marisa Vela or 713-547-8622 to inquire about a waitlist for the event.
