GENERAL INFORMATION

WHAT IS CHEFS FOR FARMERS?

Chefs For Farmers Food & Wine Festival is an annual, multi-day food and wine festival in Dallas, TX that grew from an intimate farm-to-table dinner in 2010. Chefs For Farmers’ goal is to showcase the dynamic talents of Dallas chefs, artisans and farmers who make exceptional, seasonal and sustainable food possible. Chefs For Farmers celebrates Dallas as an established food city through a handful of exquisite and mouth-watering experiences that highlights local dishes the city has to offer. As good food citizens of the world, we balance our dedication to sustainability, eco-consciousness and charity with our greatest goal: putting on the best food festival Dallas has ever seen.

DOES THE FESTIVAL BENEFIT ANY NONPROFIT ORGANIZATIONS?

Chefs For Farmers is excited to partner this year with Trigger’s Toys and help support their many initiatives to support their community. This year $25 of the Main Event ticket will go directly to their programs. Also look out for some cool new programming at the Main Event incorporating the Ultimate Cocktail Experience. Trigger’s Toys is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that has grown from Stacey & Bryan Townsend’s passion for helping medically vulnerable children into a community-wide effort to mobilize the care and compassion of the restaurant and beverage community. The organization hosts a number of initiatives throughout the year that raise funding for nonprofits like Youth With Faces and Bryan’s House while also providing critical support to displaced restaurant and bar employees. Funding from Chefs for Farmers will power all of Trigger’s Toys work and giving for the year ahead!
