Taste of Elegance Annual Gala – Lansing
Feb 20th, 3PM-6:30PM
The Taste of Elegance is an annual gala that will take place at the Lansing Center on Thursday, February 20th. This event features chefs from around the state to showcase their talents using pork in the dish. The Food Bank Council of Michigan will receive a gift of support at the event.
The Food Bank Council of Michigan has been involved with Taste of Elegance since 2005, though the Michigan Pork Producers Association has a long history with the organization. Over the last 16 years, this partnership has provided over 110,000 meals into the community. “Feeding people is the main goal of pig farmers and teaming up with the Food Bank Council of Michigan is just another way to do that,” said Mary Kelpinski, Executive Director of the Michigan Pork Producers Association.
“We are really looking forward to this year’s Taste of Elegance. It is always so much fun to sample the chef’s creations,” said Kareemah El-Amin, Executive Director of the Food Bank Council of Michigan. “Our organization really values the support from Michigan pork producers.”
