In the midst of the giving season on December 7th – 12th, Florida “foodies” and Feeding Children Everywhere have something to get excited about! This year marks the sixth anniversary of the Palm Beach Food and Wine Festival where award-winning chefs, culinary icons, vintners and mixologists are joining together to serve up yet another epic culinary event.
The festival includes an impressive lineup of chefs from around the world that has been cultivated over the years. This year, we are most captivated by the hearts of these individuals who made sure to include a generous charity component into the event, “Chefs Dish Back“. The heart of one individual that especially stood out is that of Chef Clay Conley.
Chef Clay Conley has been part of the Palm Beach Food and Wine Festival for the past two years and we are certain that he is one of many key ingredients to the event. Conley’s breakthrough into the culinary industry began with him washing dishes as a teenager. Today, he has opened two of his very own restaurants, received a James Beard nomination for the best chef in the south and is recognized by many for his wide variety of tasty dishes.
The achievements of Chef Conley go on, but what we admire most about him is his desire to give back to those who are less fortunate. At this year’s festival he has chosen Feeding Children Everywhere as his beneficiary for Chef’s Dish Back. Being a Florida-based organization and one that helps to feed hungry kids right here in our own communities through the Love Local Program really hit home for Conley. Especially being a father to a new baby girl, Conley believes that no child should ever have to go hungry. Feeding Children Everywhere is honored to have this opportunity and looks forward to seeing what the future holds for Chef Conley.
