For the seventh consecutive year, Chef Jacques Larson, Executive Chef of the Obstinate Daughter and Wild Olive, will serve as Chefs’ Feast Lead Chef. Lowcountry Food Bank Executive Chef Emily Cookson will serve as the event’s VIP chef. Chef Robert Carter founded Chefs’ Feast in 1999, and the event has become one of Charleston’s largest charitable events. The slate of participating 2024 Chefs’ Feast restaurants includes 82 Queen, Acme Lowcountry Kitchen, Aramark at College of Charleston,

We will continue to adapt, expand, and
innovate to ensure we create sustainable solutions that meet the needs of our neighbors who face hunger.” Unfortunately, one in five children in the Lowcountry experiences food
insecurity. For 25 years, LCFB has depended on Chefs’ Feast to fund its childhood hunger programs. Proceeds from Chefs’ Feast benefit Kids Café, Backpack Buddies, School Market, School Pantry and Summer Meals – which alleviate after-school, weekend and summer hunger for children.
