On April 19th, 2015, join Meals on Wheels Delaware for their 18th annual Celebrity Chefs’ Brunch, featuring culinary delights from highly acclaimed chefs from across the United States.
Meals On Wheels Delaware is a nonprofit organization working with five meal-providing agencies and thousands of volunteers from corporations, civic, religious and community groups. Together, the program provides and delivers meals every day to over 4,000 homebound seniors. In fact, in 2013 volunteers delivered over 710,000 meals throughout the state. Meals On Wheels Delaware joins the partnership by providing additional financial and volunteer resources to agency providers to ensure that seniors throughout Delaware are given the support they need. Meals On Wheels Delaware provides more than a meal — it also provides the gift of health, independence, and companionship to homebound seniors in Delaware.
Last year, I attended Meals on Wheels Delaware’s 17th annual Celebrity Chefs Brunch. The brunch is an annual event that attracts guests throughout the Delaware Valley as restaurants and chefs from across the United States and abroad showcase their best dishes in an effort to raise funds and awareness for senior hunger throughout the State of Delaware. I was blown away by the creativity and the quality of the dishes presented by the chefs.
This year, presenting chefs will include: The Beekman Boys: Josh Kilmer-Purcell & Brent Ridge from Beekman 1802 in Sharon Springs, NY; Jay Caputo from Espuma in Rehoboth Beach, DE; Nick Elmi from Laurel in Philadelphia, PA; Daniel Fox from Heritage Tavern in Madison, WI; Clifford Lyness from Perspectives Restaurant in Ottawa, ON, Canada; Harold Marmulstein from Salty Sow in Austin, TX; Cassy Vires from Juniper in St. Louis, MO; and so many more.
The 2015 Celebrity Chefs Brunch will be held on Sunday, April 19th at Hercules Plaza, located at 1313 North Market Street, in Wilmington, Delaware. If you’d like to attend this fabulous event, tickets can be purchased for $175.00 each on the Meals on Wheels Delaware site. Not local?
