Join Food For Thought for a night of food, cocktails and music, October 3rd at 6:30 pm!
This intimate food and cocktail pairing will feature delicious eats from Marrow Chefs, creative cocktails from Better Together Beverage, and entertainment from Kyle LaMonica. Prior to the dinner, we will be sending a survey to guests for the chefs and beverage mixologists to curate a menu specifically curated for the tastebuds of the guests in attendance. This truly will be a unique dining experience at the Food For Thought Pantry in Santa Rosa Beach, all while raising money to support the in-school programs this fall!
Limited space is available! Register for the event Today!
Ticket Cost: $100/person - PURCHASE HERE
Time: 6:30 pm
On Wednesday, July 10th we had the privilege of hosting the Walton County Chamber of Commerce "Power of Networking Luncheon," at the Santa Rosa Beach pantry. We love when we can share our facility with local businesses and organizations and the monthly luncheon for the Chamber of Commerce was the perfect opportunity to do so.
Almost 80 members of the Walton County Chamber of Commerce attended and they were able to walk through our facility, talk to other business owners and enjoy a lunch prepared by Marrow Private Chefs. Then fun was had by all with some networking fun playing a modified version of Family Feud!
It was great to also be able to share our mission here at Food For Thought and share opportunities to be able to get involved, especially with the upcoming school year.
Are you savvy/experienced in the kitchen?! We are looking for volunteers to lead and assist cooking classes for students in the Emeril Lagasse Full Circle Kitchen. Not need to be a professional chef! Menus are simple and easy to follow and lead; we just need people who like to cook and want to teach and lead kids in the kitchen!
For more information, please email:
See below photos from recent classes - it's a fun time had by all!
We have wonderful, happy news to share with all of you!!
One of the students from the Emeril Lagasse Full Circle Kitchen, Donnell, was just hired by Emeril's Coastal Italian!!
Donnell has been taking cooking classes with Food For Thought in the Full Circle Kitchen since he was a junior in high school and has had a passion for learning how to improve his culinary skills. We are so proud of Donnell for pursuing his dreams to work in the kitchen of a restaurant.
This makes our hearts burst to know that all those involved with Food For Thought are making an impact on kid's lives who are involved in the FFT programs.

Thank you also to the Emeril Lagasse Foundation that supports and helps kids to make their dreams a reality.
