A collection of Houston’s award-winning chefs will orchestrate a unique culinary experience to take place in the very same kitchen and dining room that serves hundreds of homeless men and women each day. The Beacon served thousands of homeless individuals last year and this annual event helps them continue their mission of providing essential and next-step services to restore hope and help end homelessness in Houston.

Participating chefs include Kevin Hart from Harold’s, Manabu “Hori” Horiuchi from Kata Robata, Brandi Key from Alice Blue, Ryan Lachaine from Riel, Bobby Matos from State of Grace/La Lucha/Superica, Hugo Ortega from Hugo’s/Backstreet Cafe/Caracol/Xochi, Ruben Ortega from Hugo’s/Backstreet Cafe/Caracol/Xochi, Mike Puccio from The Beacon, Luis Roger from BCN, and Claire Smith from Alice Blue.
