Caring Chefs is the First Coast’s first, biggest and best food and wine-tasting event.  Each year, 1,500+ guests fill The Avenues Mall sampling cuisine and drinks from around Northeast Florida.

The area’s finest chefs, sommeliers and brewers – along with guests and volunteers – come together to raise much-needed funds to help our community’s children and families.  Event revenue benefits CHS services, including counseling, adoptions and foster care, early childhood education and Community Partnership Schools.

Celebrating 115 years as a leader in serving kids and families, Children’s Home Society of Florida has been building bridges to success since 1902. CHS serves more than 60,000 children and family members throughout the state each year.

Established in 1902 as a haven for children arriving in Jacksonville on the orphan trains, CHS is still the difference between survival and success for many of Florida’s children. Now serving more than 50,000 children and families statewide, no other organization has the size, scope or solution-driven focus that CHS brings to empower children to cross bridges to success. The vision at CHS is a world where all children realize their full potential.
