For the event’s 15th anniversary, DC Central Kitchen will move the star-studded fundraiser to the city’s hottest new venue, The Anthem, located on the southwest waterfront. Presented by Smithfield Foods, the Capital Food Fight brings together over 1,200 guests to taste food and drink from more than 80 of DC’s best restaurants and mixologists while enjoying live onstage entertainment. Voted “Best Charity Event” in DC by The Washington City Paper 2016 Readers’ Poll, Capital Food Fight returns for its 15th year for a night of live culinary entertainment, delectable eats, and fighting hunger in Washington, DC.  This year’s celebrity hosts include event founder and chair, José Andrés, and Spike Mendelsohn. Four more local chefs will go head-to-head in a live culinary battle judged by Executive Producer of Bravo’s “Top Chef,” Tom Colicchio, Washington Nationals’ Ryan Zimmerman, and more judges to be announced. Tommy McFly, host of DC’s hit morning radio program, “The Tommy Show,” will serve as Master of Ceremonies along with co-hosts Kelly Collis and Jen Richer who will serve as roaming “field” reporters throughout the spectacular event. The live culinary battle will feature local chefs Kyle Bailey (The Salt Line), Autumn Cline (Rappahannock Oyster Company), Alex McCoy (Lucky Buns), and Kevin Tien (Himitsu) who will prepare dishes featuring surprise secret ingredients and compete for the votes of these celebrity judges. 100% of event proceeds benefit DC Central Kitchen’s efforts to provide culinary job training to unemployed adults, turn wasted food into balanced meals for shelters and nonprofits, and bring healthy local foods to underserved DC neighborhoods. Tickets are $275 per person. 6:00 p.m. For more information or to purchase tickets, please click here.
