Chef’s Specialty

Chef’s Specialty is one of Meals on Wheels Western Michigan’s signature events. This evening event is a time for our closest supporters and new friends to come together in a fun atmosphere to support seniors living healthy and independently in their own homes. This event has over 250 attendees and offers a cocktail reception with hors d’oeuvres, a tribute to our special honoree, a cooking demonstration from Celebrity Chef Jenna Arcidiacono of Amore Trattoria Italiana, meaningful words from a client, and, of course, a few surprises along the way!  Guests purchase tickets to attend the event or come as guests of sponsors.

This year’s theme will be Garden – because we are “planted in our mission”. Let’s kick-off the warmer weather by coming dressed in your favorite spring-time attire!
