Over a dozen restaurant and catering chefs from across the South Fork are providing chili to go for Saturday’s Chili Chowdown to benefit the Springs Food Pantry. This year’s participants include the 1770 House, Amber Waves, Peter Ambrose, Bonfire Coffeehouse, the Cookery, Kristina Felix Delano of House of Masa, Derek Freedman, Hamptons Foodie, K Pasa, One Stop Market, Rosie’s, the Springs Tavern and Grill, Sen, Smokin’ Wolf, Juliana White of Plate in Progress, and Coast Guard Station Shinnecock.

Chili will be available from noon to 2 p.m. in a drive-through line at the Springs Presbyterian Church. A $60 ticket, which can be purchased in advance through the food pantry’s website, will provide enough chili to feed two and includes a choice of two 16-ounce containers of it, cornbread, and a 16-ounce beer from the Springs Brewery.

All proceeds will benefit the pantry's mission to help feed community members in need.

In addition to the take-away meals, 10 Sharp Cat Knife Sharpening will offer a drop-off sharpening at $10 per knife, also to benefit the pantry.
