• The 14th Annual Destin Charity Wine Auction!


    We are just two weeks away from the 14th Annual Destin Charity Wine Auction, which takes place Friday, April 26th through Sunday, April 28th!  Food For Thought Outreach is proud to be one of 16 beneficiaries of the DCWAF, which since this auction began in 2005, has raised more than $18MM for children in need throughout Northwest Florida.  

    The three day event includes the Patron Dinner (4/26), Reserve Tasting and Live Auction (4/27) and the South Walton Beaches Wine & Food Festival (4/28).  The DCWAF Patron Dinner Benefiting Food For Thought Outreach will be held at the William's Estate in Destin. 

    DCWAF Patron Package Tickets are still available and can be purchased HERE, as well as tickets to the SOWAL Wine and Food Festival. Tickets for the only the wine and food festival can be purchased HERE.

    We encourage you to take part in all or part of this wonderful weekend that gives back to the community and has provided so much for Food For Thought over the years. Last year, from the proceeds of the DCWAF, Food For Thought was fortunate enough to receive $150K!

  • Emeril Lagasse Full Circle Kitchen!

    36: the number of classes that will be taught this year in our Emeril Lagasse Foundation Full Circle Kitchen! These classes are part of our increased efforts of sustainability and provide invaluable life skills to the kids who participate. We gather in the kitchen with some of the most at-risk students in our area and teach them life skills. We cook together, eat together and clean up together. This program has impacted our volunteer kitchen instructors as much as it has the kids! How can you be a part of it? Ask us how at www.fftfl.org

    And thank you to Emeril Lagasse for making this possible
