Chefs from Highball & Harvest and Whisper Creek Farm team up to raise money for Second Harvest Food Bank on Thursday


Few things combine so well as the replete feeling of a belly filled to bursting and the smug sensation of knowing you’ve Done a Good Thing by donating to charity. We don’t mean that to sound sarcastic, truly; the Second Harvest Food Bank is one of the most deserving organizations in this town, and if you can nibble your way through multiple courses of gourmet cuisine and cocktails while helping them help the hungry, everyone wins. This edition of Second Harvest’s monthly Chef’s Night features the handiwork of the talented cuisiniers of Highball & Harvest and Whisper Creek Farm. Somewhat removed from their usual schmancy environs at the Marriott Grande Lakes, chefs Nathan Hardin and Jadan Sheive come to the food bank’s community kitchen to present four courses of farm-to-table goodness; proceeds from the event support Second Harvest’s Culinary Training Program.

6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 24 | Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida, 411 Mercy Drive | 407-295-1066 | | $75
