CHATTANOOGA, TN -- Feeding hungry people across the Chattanooga region is a common objective that both the Chattanooga Community Kitchen and locally based Five Star Food Service share in their day-to-day operations. To date, Five Star said it has contributed nearly $60,000 to the community charity with proceeds of its annual events. Five Star also has provided volunteer service.

Most recently, Five Star hosted its annual company meeting, tradeshow and party. This year's festivities featured a derby-inspired theme complete with sundresses, big hats, seersucker suits, horseracing, derby hors d'oeuvre and desserts, mint juleps and an auction. The auction, from which the Community Kitchen receives all proceeds, sold more than 60 items grossing almost $13,000.

"We are truly grateful to the incredible team at Five Star," said CCK executive director Jens Christensen. "Through their support, we have been able to feed hundreds of homeless men, women and children while also helping with housing, employment and so much more. We value their partnership and truly appreciate all they continue to do."
