With Spring in the air Charleston begins to boom. Cru kicked off the season by participating in one of our favorite charity events- the 14th Annual Chef’s Feast benefiting the Lowcountry Food Bank. The event, black tie optional, was held at the Embassy Suites Charleston Area Convention Center on March 10.
Led by Chef Robert Carter of Carter’s Kitchen, Chef’s Feast is a joint effort between the food bank and 30+ local celebrity chefs. These chefs create multiple signature dishes, sweet and savory, for the guests to enjoy. Beyond the delicious food was live music, a hosted bar as well as meet and greets with the chefs themselves.
All proceeds benefited two of the Lowcountry Food Bank’s childhood hunger programs- Kids Café and BackPack Buddies– both of which alleviate after-school and weekend hunger for local children. It is stated that one out of four Lowcountry children experiences hunger and this event is geared toward lowering those statistics year round. The event has raised over $1.5 million for our childhood hunger programs since its inception.
We are honored to continue to be a part of such an important event!
