Named “the most eclectic fundraising food fest you’ve never heard of” by LA Weekly, Food Fare is known for challenging over 100 chefs, restaurants and caterers to bring on their A-game in epicurean categories such as comfort, fusion, desserts and more. Food Fare participants bring everything from customer favorites to chef’s choice and even some off-menu items, with some dishes exclusive to the event. Every year attendees rejoice in the selection and quality of the gourmet food and drink samples at Food Fare.
The Food Fare is about so much more than just food and drinks. There were dozens of silent auction items ranging from trips, special experiences, guided tours, weekend getaways, rare wine, culinary treasures.< [caption id="attachment_8488" align="aligncenter" width="577"] Browsing the silent auction at Food Fare 2017[/caption]
As visitors venture further into the festival, they find art, clothing, jewelry and charming boutique offerings. It’s easy to get lost in the whimsy created. So many guests browsed through aisles of handmade and artistic treasures and then found themselves leaving with several shopping bags. All for a good cause as a portion of each sale went to Planned Parenthood LA.
