What exactly is the Mac and Cheese-Off?

It's an amazing event full of holy gluttony in which we gather, we eat and we raise money for awareness of local hunger and other ministries that serve Harrisonburg and the surrounding community.

What's the point?

We want to raise awareness and raise money for Love Packs, RISE & Shine, Gleaning, and College Outreach. And we can't think of a cheddar (uh ... better) way to do this than with the best potluck ever.

Sounds amazing. How much does it cost?

$6 for kids
$12 for adults

What goes down?

Local amateurs like yourself and local celebrity chefs from your favorite Harrisonburg food establishments bring their own twists on mac and cheese for the public to try. And they well be grated -- uh, graded -- on which one you like the best!

What do I win?

The winner of the amateur chef competition will receive a gift certificate to a downtown business, the top Celebrity Chef wins a pretty cheesy trophy, and the winner of the most popular mac and cheese recipe wins bragging rights until the next Mac and Cheese-Off.

Purchase tickets for entry here.
