Chefs Against Hunger 2019 was a success! Thanks to everyone that joined us in making it a memorable event!


What is Chefs Against Hunger?

Each year in March, 10 of the best chefs in Kalamazoo will go head-to-head to see who can prepare and plate the most creative and delicious three-course meal in under 45 minutes. To support their effort, each chef is assisted by a local celebrity sous-chef. A panel of judges decides the winning team based on their use of a secret ingredient, which isn’t revealed to them until the competition begins.  

Chefs Against Hunger was created to highlight the unique challenges our kitchen experiences each day as we prepare and serve over 400 nutritious meals while making the best use of the ingredients available to us. 

This event supports Ministry with Community, an open and inclusive daytime drop-in shelter and resource center in Kalamazoo that serves anyone experiencing homelessness, poverty, mental illness or other challenges.
