Great Chefs® Fight Hunger

Saturday, March 9  |  5:30 – 9 p.m.

A Culinary Fundraiser for Hawai‘i Foodbank

Join us at The Harry & Jeanette Weinberg Ho‘okupu Center for a thoughtfully crafted meal that highlights local ingredients and celebrates ‘ohana.

We recognize the important role food plays in our lives. It brings us closer to each other, our families and this ‘āina. Food also innately connects us to the traditions of the past while simultaneously planting seeds for our future. As we come together for Great Chefs® Fight Hunger, we will have the opportunity do just that.

This year, we will honor the past by celebrating the legacy of our founder John White, whose vision not only laid the groundwork for the work we do today but also continues to resonate as we look toward the future. Guests will enjoy a multi-course dinner, select wines and an engaging evening that highlights local ingredients and celebrates ‘ohana.

A limited number of tables are available at the following sponsorship levels:

$25,000
