Covid cancelled 2020 and 2021, but the volunteer organizers still found something to do: they created a fundraising platform that bought meals from local restaurants that were then delivered to hospitals around the city in the darkest days of the pandemic. It raised $70K and served 6000 meals.

In considering plans for 2022, the group first surveyed their participating restaurants to see if having a festival would even be possible. “We received overwhelming support for having it,” said Christine Cole, one of this year’s team leaders. “It seems the restaurants are as ready to make this happen as we are! We are just so grateful to be relaunching the festival.”
