The Tri-State Food Bank is appealing to those in the River City who love cheesy pasta.
On Oct. 28, the organization will host the Mac & Cheese Festival, pitting local connoisseurs of the dish against one another to raise funds for the food bank.
“We came up with mac and cheese as a good option as it’s a comfort food we hand out a lot to our clients,” says Tri-State Food Bank development director Heather Davis.
Chefs will compete in one of three categories — appetizers, main course, and dessert — with dishes judged by a panel of local celebrities, including Tucker Publishing Group President Todd Tucker.
A silent auction, live entertainment, and cash bar round out this event for anyone 21 years or older.
“All of the money raised goes back to feeding the hungry,” says Davis. “It stays right here.”
