Proceeds will benefit Feed the Need, a coalition of Charleston area chefs who are committed to helping local shelters feed the hungry. Feed The Need was created to eliminate some of the economic burden that area soup kitchens and shelters are facing in today’s economic environment. The goal of Charleston Chefs Feed The Need is to serve approximately 500 meals per week using four different service venues. In Charleston, South Carolina, 52 restaurants have come together to make this effort possible. They rallied to each commit to one day of food service, 52 weeks per year, at four local nonprofits—Tricounty Family Ministries, East Cooper Meals on Wheels, Crisis Ministries and Neighborhood House. Meals are prepared in the restaurant’s kitchen and delivered and served by the restaurant’s staff.
Tickets for Charleston Showdown: North vs. South are $100 per person and available on eTix or by calling 843-259-2966.
