This year, WCFR’s annual Dinner on the Bridge: Celebrating Farm-to-Fork gourmet fundraiser will be held as a virtual campaign, due to public health concerns. Although we are disappointed to miss welcoming you into the tent at Riverfront Park, we are excited to offer a new way to safely engage and support our critical programs and services.

Since the onset of the pandemic, WCFR has provided over 300,000 meals to local families impacted by job losses, school closures, and health issues. We pivoted our services by making prepared meals and groceries available curbside and delivering meals to shelters and care centers across the community.

As with past events, our bridge dinner celebrates regional farmers, culinary creativity and artisan producers. We invite you to consider a small, socially distanced home gathering to enjoy one of our finest meals to date.

We value your past support and welcome new members to the WCFR family. Please consider participating in our virtual fundraiser by ordering your gourmet dinner featuring Chef Melissa’s favorite ingredients and a spectacular dessert created by award-winning chef Ricky Webster, winner of Food Network’s Christmas Cookie Challenge.  For tickets and other information, visit bridgedinner.org.
