Chefs' Feast to raise money to fight hunger

Many of Charleston's best chefs are partaking in the 10th Annual Chefs' Feast to help raise money for the Lowcountry Food Bank to fight hunger and malnutrition.

Robert Carter or Peninsula Grill, Marc Collins & Scott Lovorn of Circa 1886, Mike Lata of Fig, Nico Romo of Fish, Frank Lee of Slightly North of Broad, and Nate Whiting of Woodlands Inn are just a few of the many participating chefs.

Here's a bit about who the Lowcountry Food Bank is, and what the event is about from the Web site:

Hunger and malnutrition strike nearly one in four children in our community. The Lowcountry Food Bank is dedicated to fighting childhood hunger. Several programs including Kids Cafe, an innovative after-school program that provides hot, nutritious meals and academic assistance, and BackPack Buddies, a program designed to attack the issue of weekend hunger, are our central tools in the effort to end childhood hunger. Nearly 2,500 children are served each week through both programs.

The Lowcountry Food Bank cannot do it alone! The 10th annual Chefs’ Feast Gala will help raise the much needed funds for Kids Cafe and BackPack Buddies. Led by Chef Robert Carter of Peninsula Grill, the Lowcountry’s most acclaimed chefs will once again join together to fight childhood hunger and celebrate an evening of exquisite food and quality entertainment.

Tickets for the feast are $150 per person and can be purchased online. The event is Sunday, February 22, at 6:45 pm to 9:30 pm at the Embassy Suites Charleston Area Convention Center in North Charleston.
