Covenant House Presents Chef's Challenge 2020

By Candace Nelson - 3:00 PM

One of my favorite events of the year is the Covenant House's Chef's Challenge.

The Covenant House, which was founded in in 1981 to help people with the fewest resources meet their basic needs: food, clothing and shelter, hosts the fundraising event to benefit people in the community.

Chefs ChallengeThe 10th Annual Chef's Challenge was a tapas-style dine-around prepared by local chefs, who prepared dishes made with food typically found in the Covenant House's food pantry.
