Metro Cooking DC!

By Shamia Holloway August 9, 2013

del-campoThe Capital Area Food Bank got a taste of the night life when Metro Cooking DC hosted a happy hour at Del Campo Restaurant on Wednesday, August 7. Del Campo Chef Victor Albisu prepared delicious treats and specialty cocktails for a who’s who guest list, including Metro Cooking DC CEO Bill Medved and Osteria Marzano’s Elena Povchelon. Happy hour attendees were encouraged to bring “most wanted” food items and collected over 80 pounds of food for the CAFB.
The happy hour was part of Metro Cooking DC’s launch of its Grand Tasting Pavilion during the upcoming November cooking show, when 40 local restaurants will join TV chefs, cookbook authors, 300 specialty food exhibitors, caterers and food truck owners. The event will be held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.
A portion of the Metro Cooking DC ticket proceeds will be donated to the food bank to help feed residents struggling with hunger in the Washington metro area.
