Epicure: One Bite at a Time, Channel One Regional Food Bank’s new and exciting fundraising event, will occur on Saturday, April 29th, 2023.

Featuring at least 20 partnering restaurants providing epicurean bites, this exciting new event will give approximately 250 guests a chance to socialize, dance and come together around something that connects us all: food. Proceeds will support Channel One Food Bank’s prepared meals program, Kitchen Coalition.

Empty Bowls

Empty Bowls, our signature fundraiser taking place in October each year, remains a crucial part of Channel One’s work to increase food security for our friends and neighbors. Channel One seeks donations throughout the year from our local arts community in an effort to continue the tradition of providing handmade or hand-painted bowls to our event participants.
