Enjoy an afternoon of food, fellowship, and charity
to benefit Georgia’s food-insecure population.
ATLANTA, GA — Wholesome Wave Georgia returns with their 9th annual Southern Chefs Potluck on Sunday, September 16, 2018 for the final year at the pastoral grounds at the Inn at Serenbe. This event will bring together guests for an exclusive, intimate afternoon of food, fellowship, and charity. A favorite among the Atlanta food community, Southern Chefs Potluck invites some of the city’s most highly-regarded chefs like Steven Satterfield, Asha Gomez, and more to mingle with guests and enjoy a casual Sunday supper in a beautiful open-air pavilion to support Wholesome Wave Georgia.
Sunday, September 16, 2018
3:00 – 6:00 p.m.
The Inn at Serenbe
10950 Hutcheson Ferry Road
Palmetto, GA 30268
Each chef will contribute a family-style side dish for dinner that compliments a main dish to be served along with homemade pickles, relishes, and desserts to be shared. The event will also feature local beer, wine, and cocktails created and served by renowned mixologists and a live auction with one-of-a-kind chef experiences and a guest auctioneer.
In addition to the delicious food provided at the potluck, Wholesome Wave Georgia will offer a VIP pre-party hosted by Steven Satterfield and Asha Gomez. The VIP kick-off party will be held at the Inn at Serenbe with live music, cocktails, and small appetizers.
Tickets are $175 for general admission, $300 for VIP admission, and $600 for a VIP admission package for two. Last year, Southern Chefs Potluck raised more than $146,000 in support of Wholesome Wave Georgia’s mission to increase access to fresh, healthy, and locally-grown food for all Georgians.
All proceeds benefit Wholesome Wave Georgia’s two core programs: Georgia Fresh for Less™ (GF4L) and the Fruit & Vegetable Prescription Program® (FVRx). Georgia Fresh for Less matches dollar- for-dollar what EBT/Food Stamps consumers spend at their local farmers markets to encourage healthy and affordable eating habits. The statewide program serves more than 10,000 families per year across more than 41 counties and features a network of 62 farmers markets in both rural and urban communities. The Fruit and Vegetable Prescription Program creates affordable access to fruits and vegetables by partnering with fresh food and healthcare providers to write healthy eating prescriptions for families with diet-related illnesses. The FVRx Program operates at four sites across the state and redeemed over $66,000 worth of fruit and vegetable incentives in 2017.
