Community members came together to sample dishes from local chefs while also lending a hand to those struggling to put food on the table.

More than 700 people attended the 11th Annual Great Chefs Fight Hunger Culinary Event on Saturday.

Held at the Hawaii Foodbank's warehouse in Mapunapuna the fundraiser featured food, wine, a silent auction and entertainment.

All proceeds collected from the event will help Hawaii's hungry.

“There's 287,000 people on an annual basis that are served by ourselves or our member agencies,” said Gerald Shintaku, CEO and president, Hawaii Foodbank. “That's one in five people in the state of Hawaii so it demands a lot of resources whether it's products or monetary donations.”
