The Five Star Food Service-Chattanooga Community Kitchen partnership is celebrating seven consecutive years of community oriented cooperation to support and benefit the Chattanooga community.
Every year Five Star Food Service hosts its annual company meeting, trade show, and party with the purposes of recapping the year gone by, forecasting the upcoming year, and celebrating its most recent accomplishments. This year’s sports theme was exemplified by the abundance of athletic jerseys, decorations, and mini games, that could be seen in all directions.
However, just like every year before, the main attraction for the night was the auction, from which the Community Kitchen receives 100 percent of the proceeds. This year’s auction, which brought in just over $12,000, also added an extra layer of value to the seven year partnership milestone, by raising Five Star’s average yearly donation for the entirety of the partnership to more than $10,000.
“As a company committed to its community, Five Star has shown that they believe in helping those in need,” said Executive Director Jens Christensen. “Because of this incredible generosity, hundreds of lives are impacted each year through our critical services.”
