Chefs For Change

Did you know that there are nearly 900 evictions filed in Durham every month?  Local nonprofit Families Moving Forward knows it well, and works to coordinate a series of locally-based support services to help families that face eviction.  Through our support of their signature event, Chefs For Change, Harris is helping that cause as well.

Chefs For Change is a series of 5 fundraising dinner events that each feature a different local restaurateur.  Kicking off the year on March 12 with Charlie Deal (proprietor of Dos Perros, Juju, and Jujube), this year’s lineup looks to be killer.  We feel like it’s kinda the perfect combination of great food from amazing local chefs, excellent company, and a crucial cause for our community.  Along with great beer, of course!

Durham is a dynamic and quickly growing community that we’ve been proud to call home for a long time.  Recently that growth has had an increased impact on some of our most vulnerable neighbors.  Through our support of Chefs For Change, we are proud to be a part of the efforts that directly support nearly 100 families in our local community, and coordinate help for many others beyond that.   From sheltering families and children while helping parents find permanent housing, to coordinating with other local resources to help prevent families from needing emergency housing in the first place, Families Moving Forward has been an essential resource for people in need that call Durham home.

This charity is an essential part of our community, and we couldn’t be prouder to support them during another year of Chefs For Change.
