Eat to Empower Dinner Series + Food Festival 2019

2018 Eat to Empower Food Festival

What is Eat to Empower?

Eat to Empower Dinner Series + Food Festival is Vetri Community Partnership’s two-part fundraising event featuring the best culinary talent from both Philadelphia and the nation. In 2018, Eat to Empower was kicked off with the inaugural event, raising over $250,000 to support Vetri Community Partnership’s vision of a healthier Philadelphia region.

At the Eat to Empower Dinner Series some of the nation’s best chefs are paired with top local culinary talent for intimate, invitation-only dinners held at private homes across the Philadelphia region. At each home, up to 20 guests are treated to a first-class, one-of-a-kind dining experience. The evening then culminates in the Eat to Empower Food Festival featuring samplings of Philadelphia’s best restaurants, spirits, musical talent, and entertainment.
