Zest Fest 2019 returns with mission to tackle hunger in Central Virginia


RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Zest Fest 2019 is underway at the Main Street Station in Richmond.

FeedMore’s annual gala to help tackle hunger in the region has returned for the 17th year and locals are excited to give back. 

Last year, more than 400 people attended the event at the Greater Richmond Convention Center, raising over $150,000 towards hunger relief in Central Virginia.

The event brought in enough funds to provide roughly 600,000 meals to neighbors in need.

This year, Zest Fest 2019 presents guests with an opportunity to gather for a seated, coursed family-style dinner prepared by several area chefs. Individual appetizer and dessert stations will flank the evening with custom cocktails, along with Virginia beer and wine.

The 8News team made their way to the event, emceed by anchor Juan Conde:
