Meals on Wheels Star Chefs & Vintners Gala was held at Ft. Mason on June 1, 2014. The event raised more than $2.6 million in support of homebound seniors. More than 100 chefs and 90 vintners from across Northern California participated in the Gala, with Nancy Oakes of Boulevard serving as Gala Chef Chair for the 11th year.
Meals on Wheels is regarded as one of the best food and wine charity events in the country, bringing together Northern California’s most illustrious chefs and wineries for a one-night-only epicurean extravaganza. Meals on Wheels provide nutritious meals and companionship to homebound seniors.
For the past 27 years Taste Catering and & Event Planning has played an integral part in the production and success of this wonderful event. Congratulations to the Gala team!
