Chefs for Change

Chefs for Change is a fundraising dinner series that pairs the burgeoning Durham food scene with the needs of families experiencing homelessness. This is more than a dinner – this is a fine dining experience with a purpose. A distinguished chef will serve three or more courses at a ticketed dinner with the proceeds benefiting Families Moving Forward. Tickets are sold online in advance to 100 attendees and is held at the Rickhouse in Durham.
