The 10th Annual Morsel Combat gala event held on Thursday, November 11, was a HUGE SUCCESS! With 10 chefs, 2 dessert providers, 5 judges, and over 400 attending guests total donations will allow us to feed 2,360 children for an entire year! Congratulations to Wasabi for winning the People’s Choice award and to Hy-Vee for taking home the Judge’s Choice award. A special thank you to all of our sponsors for helping to make this a fantastic event. We hope to see everyone at Morsel Combat in 2022!
