Annual Chef Challenge

Founded in 2014 to benefit the Acton Food Pantry

The 2019 Chef Challenge and Fundraising Auction was held on Friday, April 26 at Wedgewood Pines in Stow, MA.


The Chef Challenge and Fundraising Auction partners with chefs from local restaurants, cafes, and caterers to share a tasting of their cuisine. Each chef comes "shopping" at the pantry to collect ingredients for their dishes, using these as well as ingredients they bring from their personal pantry  - but there's a twist! Each chef is also given a secret, mystery ingredient with which to create their own unique dishes. Guests will have a chance to sample each chef's creation and vote for their favorites. The food is inventive & delicious, and the competition is lively! There's also a silent auction and a very brief live auction. Cash bar is thanks to the generosity of our sponsors.


We assembled some of the area's best chefs, talented people who care deeply about food and helping others. This year we were honored to announce that our chefs came from Saltbox Kitchen, True West, Comeketo, Deven's Grill, Fiorella's, Nashoba Brook Bakery, and KK's Catering
