The meals will be presented at the event where celebrity judges will evaluate each dish. The winner will have their name added to the Poor Chefs trophy and will receive a year of free knife sharpening from Knifewear (https://knifewear.com).We're very excited to announce that this year's judges are,Mike Bulthuis; executive director of Alliance to End Homelessness OttawaAnne DesBrisay; local food author, writer and restaurant criticMichael Maidment; executive director of the Ottawa Food BankSandra & Carter; 105.3 K!SS FMCatherine McKenney, Ottawa city councillor.Appetizers prepared by one of our social enterprises, Foodworks, (www.foodworksoch.com), will be distributed throughout the evening, in addition to a cash bar where wine and beer will be available.
