Celebrity Chef Event

Food Bank for the Heartland has named their 2022 Celebrity Event guest chef. Author, podcast host, and restaurateur Richard Blais will helm the Spring event on Thursday, March 3rd. More details will be available soon for the event. The annual fundraiser features a multi-course meal, demonstration, and Q&A with the celebrity chef. Last year’s event featuring Curtis Stone was held virtually due to Covid restrictions, but with any luck, Spring of 2022 will see cases significantly diminished.
