Dish: Cuisine for Change
May 30, 2013, Saint Paul RiverCentre
Second Harvest Heartland's premier fundraising gala, Dish is an elegant evening of fine food prepared by the best chefs in and around the Twin Cities, auction items, wine tasting and entertainment to help our hungry neighbors. Each year, the event raises nearly $500,000 in support of our work towards a hunger-free community. 2013 marks the 10-year anniversary of Dish—you won't want to miss it!
June 17 - 28, 2013
Compete against local organizations in 4 sectors (law, accounting, food companies and “kitchen sink”) to collect food, raise money, and volunteer your time. Awards will be given to the organizations that rise to the challenge, but the real winners are the hungry children, seniors and working families in our community.
