'100 Men Who Cook' raises $90,000 for hunger relief

MUNCIE — Old National Bank’s “100 Men Who Cook” annual event raised $90,000 for Second Harvest Food Bank of East Central Indiana at the Horizon Convention Center in Muncie on Nov. 16.

For this unique fundraiser, 100 “chefs” from the local community prepared their best dish to share and raise as much money as possible to alleviate hunger in Second Harvest’s eight-county region.

From main courses, salads and side dishes to soups and desserts, each recipe was unique and many men had stories about their delicacies. Awards were given for best costume, who raised the most money in each food category, the least amount of ingredients, most amount of ingredients and others.

Second Harvest Food Bank’s mission is to provide a coordinated approach to alleviating hunger in east central Indiana. The goal is to feed east central Indiana's most vulnerable residents through a regionwide network of 110-member agencies and programs and to engage the region in the fight to end hunger. Each year, the Second Harvest Food Bank network provides food assistance to more than 74,000 low-income people facing hunger in Madison, Blackford, Delaware, Grant, Henry, Jay, Randolph and Wabash counties, including nearly 24,140 children and 5,180 seniors.
