On the beautiful evening of Saturday April 27th, Vetri Community Partnership held our 2nd Annual Eat to Empower Dinner Series and Food Festival.

The Eat to Empower Dinner Series included a group of six invitation-only dinners that were held in private locations throughout the city. Here we were honored to have some of the nation’s best chefs join us to partner with a selection of Philadelphia’s finest chefs to prepare a fantastic meal for each of the hosts and their guests.

That same evening at Cherry Street Pier, over 450 Eat to Empower Food Festival guests came hungry and ready to enjoy a sampling of Philly’s most popular local restaurants and beverage companies. The beautiful views, weather, raffles, auctions, music and much more all added to the appeal of the evening!

Before the night was over, guests at both the Dinner Series and the Food Festival helped to raise over $300,000 to support our culinary and nutrition education programs.
