Local restaurants, beverage distributors and caterers will come together on June 4 for the 25th annual Jacksonville FOODFIGHT – an event that provides attendees with the opportunity to sample specialty dishes and signature cocktails while raising funds to fight hunger and support struggling families through Lutheran Social Services of Northeast Florida (LSS) and the Nourishment Network.
Since 1989, the Jacksonville FOODFIGHT has raised more than $1 million in the fight against hunger. In addition to food and drinks, the event will also include live entertainment from local favorite The Band Be Easy.
To purchase tickets, visit JacksonvilleFoodFight.org. For more information about the event, contact Jennifer Tamol at JTamol@lssjax.org or 904.730.8239.
