Southern Chefs Potluck to Benefit Wholesome Wave Georgia

We love it when a good time overlaps with a great cause. This past Sunday we took the rig to the Serenbe community outside of Atlanta for the 2nd Annual Southern Chef’s Potluck to benefit Wholesome Wave Georgia. Thirteen of Atlanta’s most talented chefs brought farm-fresh sides and desserts, and we served up our hot links and pimento cheese. We also smoked a flock of White Oak Pastures whole chickens. (We’d like to send a big thank you to Will and Jenni Harris for providing the chickens!).

But more important than merely providing a good meal, all of the players were there to raise money for Wholesome Wave Georgia. This not-for-profit group puts good, wholesome food within reach for the families that need it most. They subsidize food stamps at farmers markets so that one food stamp dollar becomes two when it’s spent at a farmers market. So the farmers get paid and struggling families get access to wholesome, locally grown food.

Francis James of Perception Films was there documenting the efforts on behalf of Wholesome Wave Georgia. Chef Linton Hopkins offers his insight on the SFA Skillet Brigade and the work that Wholesome Wave accomplishes.
