Local chefs are teaming up with Adam Hegsted and Feed the Children to help combat childhood hunger. They’re hosting a dinner at the Montvale Event Center to help raise money for their cause.
The dinner is part of Feed the Children’s Celebrity Chef Series. Hegsted, of the Eat Good Group of restaurants, including Wandering Table and Honey Eatery and Social Club, is the celebrity host chef.
Guest chefs also involved in the multi-course meal are: Aaron Fish, of the Eat Good Group; Paul Mason of Vine and Olive; Chad White of Zona Blanca; Pete Tobin of Inland Northwest Culinary Academy; Emily Crawford of Doughlicious Bakery; and Travis Dickinson of Cochinito Taqueria.

Funds raised during the dinner will be used for a community-feeding event in Spokane. Organizers hope to deliver a truck filled with $100,000 worth of food and supplies to help struggling families in the area.
The reception starts at 6 p.m. Nov. 13 at the Montvale Event Center, 1017 W. First Ave. Dinner is at 7 p.m. Tickets are $125 each and are available online at https://fundraise.feedthechildren.org/event/spokane-feed-the-children-benefit-dinner-2018/e204765.
