OKC Chefs' Feast Raises Over $126K For 'Food For Kids'
OKLAHOMA CITY - More than $126,000 was raised for the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma's Food For Kids program during the 27th annual Chefs' Feast Thursday night.
According to officials with the Food Bank, thanks to the support from local restaurants and the community, 630 chronically hungry students will have access to food over weekends and school holidays.
"We want to thank all of the chefs, guests, sponsors and volunteers for helping us fight childhood hunger," said Rodney Bivens, executive director of the Regional Food Bank. "We also want to thank Chef Christine Dowd from Aunt Pittypat's Catering and Chef Don Thiery from Platt College for coordinating this successful event."
This year, Chefs Quinn Carroll and Lee Bennett from Cheever's received the most votes from guests and won the 2014 Foodie Favorite Award, according to the Regional Food Bank.
