Now Serving, a nonprofit group distributing healthy meals from restaurants, caterers, and commercial kitchens to the local community, will host Now Serving Food + Wine on Oct. 21 in Smoky Hollow. Proceeds from this event will help fund more community meals.

The event will celebrate the nonprofits work in the Triangle culinary scene, including its 72,000 donated meals since its inception in February 2022.

Vendors at the event will include Smoky Hollow residents Madre and Midwood Smokehouse as well as Cheeni Indian Food Emporium, Hummingbird, Stanbury, Mandolin, St. Roch, and plenty more hot Raleigh restaurants.

This event is free to attend, but a $75 ticket will get participants a sample from each of the 12 food stalls as well as wine, spirits, and beer. In addition to delicious bites, attendees will enjoy local music and cooking demonstrations.
