The Food Bank Hunger Games will take place on Thursday, April 27th at 6:30. It will be held at The Food Bank of South Jersey in Pennsauken. This entertaining event will benefit  hunger relief programs for children in NJ. Teams will get a box of mystery ingredients and 45 minutes to create their best dish. This is an action packed live cooking competition where the winner gets bragging rights and a team trophy.

While there will be plenty of excitement from the competition, the evening also includes food and wine tastings. Attendees will have the chance to taste desserts made from pastry chefs across south Jersey. They can then vote for the Best of the Bite Sized Dessert Award.  I was there a few years ago and these were some of the fabulous desserts!

Come on over and see what the excitement is all about. It’s a fun evening and you will also be participating in a great community event. Tickets are only $10 and $15 at the door. To purchase a ticket click HERE .

Hope to see you there!
