Fort Worth Food and Wine Foundation

About the Fort Worth Food + Wine Foundation

The FWFWF is more than a good time – it’s a good cause. That’s because proceeds from the festival go to the Fort Worth Food + Wine Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that raises funds for local grant programs and culinary scholarships. To date, the Foundation raised more than $200,000 for grants and scholarships supporting deserving culinary students from Fort Worth.
