Our Generous Helpings Patrons’ Party Wows the Crowd!

Each year our Generous Helpings Patrons’ Party gives attendees a one-of-a-kind dining experience with some of Nashville’s top chefs. This year’s event was held last week at Sinema restaurant and was an evening not to be forgotten.

Guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oevres at the upstairs lounge prepared by B.J. Lofback and Mark Rubin. The night continued downstairs where six of Nashville’s favorite chefs were preparing their unique course offering. Each chef discussed their connection to Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee and why they chose to be a part of this event. You can view the full menu and wine pairing below.

It was a fantastic evening filled with incredible food in support of our mission to feed hungry people and work to solve hunger issues in our community.

Tickets for the main event are still available! Generous Helpings, Presented by Kroger, will take place on Thursday, May 12 at City Winery and will feature 24 local restaurants showcasing tastings of signature appetizers, entrees and desserts, with fine wines and craft beers.
