Take a bite out of poverty! This year’s 7th Annual Culinary Collage is said to be bigger and better than ever. The event helps support Fletcher Place Community Center, which provides needed services to families on the near southeast side of Indy, including the Historic Fountain Square area.

So come celebrate food, family, and fun on Sunday, May 1st, from 1:00 – 4:00pm, at the Biltwell Event Center. You can sample unique culinary specialties from local restaurants, try your hand at getting some goodies in the auction or raffle, and get up close and personal with wildlife with Silly Safaris. Local restaurants (including Santorini’s, Pure Eatery, Kim’s Kakes, Garfield Eatery, and more!) will be on hand to share their taste sensations, absolutely free!
