Do you have a dish that everyone “raves” about? Would you like a fun and rewarding way to give back to the community? If you answered “YES”, Community Shares invites you to participate as an Amateur Cook at Gourmet Grub for Good, a spirited, friendly amateur cook competition and fundraiser to help support local non profit organizations. Attendees vote on their favorite dishes and winners have bragging rights for an entire year!

Register here to serve as one of our Amateur Cooks at this year’s Gourmet Grub for Good! 

Gourmet Grub for Good is an amateur chef cook-off with over 50 amateur chefs competing in various categories. Guests sample the dishes and vote for their favorite.  This year the event will include local celebrity chef Jean-Phillip of Jean-Robert’s Restaurant, and Fabulous Foodies from Huit, La Soupe, Park + Vine, and Macaron Bar! 

Special thank you to Blue Kaboom Inbound Marketing for donating their time and talent to create our logos for this year’s event!
