FoodChain presents the 3rd annual FEAST - a food event for foodies, like no other in the region! FEAST features 13 nationally acclaimed women guest chefs from around the country and talented women chefs from Kentucky. You'll enjoy creative food samplings by each chef, cocktails and fun as you casually mix, mingle and enjoy the quintessential Kentucky setting of Fasig Tipton.

Proceeds from FEAST tickets sales and sponsorships benefit FoodChain, a nonprofit now in it's 8th year, dedicated to bringing a new approach to connecting communities with fresh food. FoodChain has educated over 30,000 urban youth and their families, about sustainable food production, wholesome meal planning and fresh local food preparation for a stronger community.
