2018 Maplewood Chili Cookoff Raises Over $6,000 to Fight Hunger

From The Maplewood Chili Cookoff:

The 2018 Maplewood Chili Cookoff raised over $6,000 to fight hunger in our community!

Because of the generous support of the sponsors who funded the cookoff and the volunteers who gave their time to make it possible, all of the money spent on tickets and all of our bar profits went directly to The Interfaith Food Pantry of the Oranges. That’s over $6,000 to buy nutritious food for the people in our community who need it most.

Please make an effort to support the businesses that have supported us:

Pollock Properties Group: the community-focused real estate group that gives back more than any other.
Whole Foods: No hydrogenated fats and artificial colors, flavors, preservatives and sweeteners, ever.
BCB Community Bank: Our favorite community-minded bank (new branch in downtown Maplewood!)
Additional sponsorship came from The Able BakerWine BarrelRedglass PicturesGreat BelieverPhoto Booth StudiosMartin’s Pretzels, and the South Mountain YMCA.

Also, a huge thank you also to our two amazing house bands Stillhouse Serenade and The Hometown Specials!

Over 300 voters dug into 33 toothsome chilis.
