Last year’s event was a huge hit, and people were amazed at the creativity of the chefs in serving up their version of America’s favorite comfort food. The Mac & Cheese committee is excited as they plan to make this year’s festival bigger and more delicious than ever!” states Glenn Roberts, Executive Director, Tri-State Food Bank.

This year’s Mac & Cheese Festival will feature 3 delicious competitive categories: Traditional, Exotic and Dessert.
