The Tri-County Restaurant Association’s 24th annual Celebrity Cuisine, presented by Atlantic Food Distributors to benefit Community Harvest, was held at the Canton Memorial Civic Center. With a record crowd of more than 1,200 attendees, “foodies” from all over NE Ohio enjoyed unlimited access to appetizers, entrée samples, beer, wine and desserts, while they listened to live music by Ryan Humbert and bid on silent auction items. The food was distributed by local and national celebrities including Matt Wilhelm, Todd Blackledge and Bruno Gunn from the Hunger Games, to name just a few. The $41,000 raised from this event accounts for nearly half of the total operating income required to run Community Harvest. Community Harvest serves as a “link” for more than 100 local restaurants, caterers, grocery stores, farmers and hospital kitchens to donate their unused and healthy food to 32 community-based organizations in Stark County at no cost.
