What is the Best of Kansas City Chefs?
The evening showcased the Chef's signature dishes and provided guests with one-on-one contact with some of Kansas City's best Chefs!
Food is one of the most basic human needs, yet many don’t know where their next meal is coming from. They are children, the elderly, the disabled, the unemployed and the working poor in our community — perhaps even in our own neighborhood.
Here in Kansas City, as many as 66,000 of our neighbors do not have access to the food they need to sustain their health and strength every week. Many of them rely on emergency food programs such as food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters to put food on the table for their families.
Harvesters is a food bank, which is a centralized food collection and distribution facility that provides food and household products to agencies serving people in need.
All proceeds from the event is benefiting Harvesters right here in Kansas City and also support the Chef Apprenticeship Culinary Program at Johnson County Community College.
As the public's interest in food continues to grow, so does the demand for trained chefs. At Johnson County Community College this program is sponsored by the American Culinary Federation, the Greater Kansas City Chefs Association, and the U.S. Department of Labor.
Here are some photo highlights from this year's 2012 Best of Kansas City Chefs benefit. We hope you enjoyed the event and the pictures below.
