RICHMOND, Va. – FeedMore, Central Virginia’s core-hunger relief organization, will hold their annual gala Zest Fest on Saturday, February 24 at the Greater Richmond Convention Center. All proceeds from Zest Fest will help neighbors across Central Virginia who struggle with hunger.

 

“Zest Fest is something we look forward to every year and this year we have something very special to celebrate – the golden anniversary of our Meals on Wheels,” said Doug Pick, Chief Executive Officer at FeedMore. “Since 1967, our Meals on Wheels has delivered nourishment and peace of mind to our senior and homebound neighbors. We look forward to honoring the amazing accomplishments of this program and the difference our incredible community has made in the fight against hunger, together.”

 

Guests will have the chance to win exciting trips, bid on unique silent and live auction items and enjoy delectable small plates from some of Richmond’s top chefs and restauranteurs.

 

This year’s chefs include: Sara Ayyash (The Jefferson Hotel), Tammy Brawley (The Green Kitchen), Ivan Coleman (Hilton Richmond Downtown), Antjuan Fisher (FeedMore's Community Kitchen), J Frank (The Lewis Family), Danielle Goodreau (A Sharper Palate), Velma Johnson (Mama J's Kitchen), Kevin Ramkissoon (ARAMARK), Tony Sappal (India K'Raja), Christine Wansleben (Mise En Place), Daniel Welsch (The Gaytering Company) and Zach Wingold (Casa del Barco).

 

In addition to enjoying delicious eats and local craft beers and vintage blends, guests will also be able to dance the night away to music from The Blue Tips Rhythm Revue Band. Last year’s Zest Fest provided more than 681,000 healthy meals to children, families and seniors across Central Virginia who face hunger.
