On March 11, 2018, Chef Katie Teall of The Cookery Catering, in partnership with the Foodbank of Santa Barbara County, will host local luminaries and first responders at spectacular Rancho Santa Barbara for Rising from the Ashes: A Feast to Benefit the Foodbank.
The Foodbank of Santa Barbara County has been at the forefront of Thomas Fire and Montecito Mudslide relief and recovery since the beginning, distributing hundreds of thousands of pounds of healthy groceries and fresh fruits and vegetables to nearly 10,000 people affected by the disasters.
Within a day of the Thomas Fire, the Foodbank established a partnership with the Red Cross to ensure food distributions to evacuees, first responders, students, and those facing economic dislocation from disaster-related loss of work and income.

At Rising from the Ashes: A Feast to Benefit the Foodbank, guests will enjoy a gourmet lunch prepared by Chef Teall and The Cookery Catering, open bar, and a live and silent auction emceed by KEYT Senior Reporter John Palminteri. Proceeds will support the Foodbank's Thomas Fire and Flood Hunger Relief Fund.

Thank you to our Rising from the Ashes Partners!
