Culinary Classic

Thank You to all our 2015 Culinary Classic Sponsors, Vendors, Musicians, and Guests – it was a night to remember – see you next year!


The FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties will be hosting our 24th Annual Culinary Classic on Monday, September 21st from 5:00-9:00pm at Doolan’s Shore Club in Spring Lake Heights, New Jersey. Many of the Jersey Shore’s culinary legends will present an array of delectable food and drink pairings at the event, which will help to raise funds that provide emergency food and services to over 131,000 people in our local communities.

VIP Tickets for the event are $125/per person, which allow you to take in the experience, with special seating in the VIP room and table service! We also have General Admission Tickets available, which are $75/per person. Please join The FoodBank in our mission to alleviate hunger in our local communities!

Seating is limited! For ticket information, contact Ryan Hubler at or call 732-643-5860 CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE TICKETS.

The Culinary Classic – the first of its kind at the Jersey Shore – was established in 1991, bringing together the finest restaurants, caterers, wineries and breweries for over 20 years.

The Culinary Classic has maintained its fine tradition of excellence throughout the years. Guests sip specialty cocktails, wines and champagne from premier vineyards and taste micro-brewed beer from local New Jersey breweries all while sampling the finest food the Jersey Shore has to offer.

All food and beverages for this benefit are donated. It takes all participants many hours of preparation and substantial resources to make this event a success. When you are dining out or purchasing wine throughout the coming year, please consider patronizing our donors who gave so generously to help stem hunger in our communities.
