About/Contact

Friendly Feast is a San Diego-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that produces culinary fundraising events to celebrate chefs and lift up the local community.

Proceeds are shared with nonprofits that help K-12 students break the cycle of homelessness, give people facing barriers to employment the skills they need to launch meaningful careers in the hospitality industry, and connect people facing hunger with nutritious meals.

Our scholarship fund helps the next generation of culinary professionals complete their education at public community colleges including Grossmont College and Mesa College. Click here to make a donation!
