Chili benefit adds mac and cheese, human foosball

The Christian Cupboard Emergency Food Shelf in Woodbury is holding its second Chili Hubbub fundraiser from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, March 12, at Guardian Angels Catholic Church, 8260 Fourth St. N., Oakdale. Chefs from east metro area restaurants will vie for favorite chili status and, new this year, a mac and cheese competition has been added as well as a human foosball tournament.

Activities will include chili tasting, live music and games for children. Tickets are $10 per person in advance or $12 at the door. Children, 12 and younger, will be admitted free. Beer, wine and soda will be available for purchase.

All proceeds will help support the Christian Cupboard. Each dollar donated will be matched on a pro-rata basis by Minnesota FoodShare.

The event, part of the annual March campaign for Minnesota FoodShare month, is supported by Thrivent Community-East Metro and the East Metro Financial Team of Thrivent Financial.
