Help us Support the Talent in Fort Worth

Introducing our Inaugural Chef Stipend Campaign! This initiative will make it even easier to bring you the best and brightest culinary talent.

Who it Impacts: 

  • The Fresh New Face – New and emerging chef and beverage talent in Fort Worth. For those chefs, food truck owners, side hustlers getting their name out your donation will allow them to participate at the festival bringing their food to a massive new audience! 
  • The Seasoned Professional – Support our super-start chefs who continue to make the festival and the Fort Worth culinary scene what it is! It takes a lot to participate in the festival, from time away from their restaurants, to food cost, and staffing cost, even our lost time supporters need a helping hand. 
  • The Underrepresented Chef – The culinary world is changing for the better, and the foundation is thrilled to be a part of this movement! From female chefs to People of Color, some of the greatest talent has long been underrepresented. This stipend will create opportunities for those traditional underrepresented chefs to shine!
