Healthy Chef Challenge

Healthy Chef Challenge



We are thrilled to bring the heat (and fun) back in the kitchen with the return of our Healthy Chef Challenge. Held at the stunning industrial private event space, Goose Island Barrel House, this culinary competition puts the skills of talented Chicago area chefs to the test!  A crew of celebrity judges decides which chef makes the most delicious entree using ingredients commonly found in our food pantry. Guests will have the opportunity to watch the competition, eat, drink, and sharpen their own culinary skills through demonstrations by our Health Ambassadors.

Feed the need and your inner foodie.
