Taste of the Upstate

You'd never be able to eat at 10 restaurants in one night without needing stretchy pants and a ride home, but, on Sunday, April 16, that's exactly what will be possible! Join Loaves & Fishes for the Taste of the Upstate: 2023 Food Rescue Challenge. This year's challenge will be held Sunday, April 16th, from 11:30am-2pm at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena Patio.

Each dish will feature a commonly rescued food as an ingredient to bring awareness to food waste. Nikko Cagalanan (cah-GAL-uh-nan), a Charleston champion from Food Network TV's Chopped, will be the guest judge.

Taste of the Upstate will feature 10 of Greenville's tastiest restaurants, each sharing their finest dishes with a panel of regional food experts and local TOU ticket holders. 2023 will feature a panel of local judges including local chef and former winner of Taste of the Upstate awards, Tony Keely, and Nikko Cagalanan.
