 Forks & Corks 2014
 . Hope to see you there! Eat, drink and help feed Kansas City's hungry at the 18th annual Forks & Corks, a food and wine tasting event benefiting Harvesters. Last year’s event was a huge success at the exquisite Grand Ballroom at the Kansas City Convention Center and the event will continue at this exciting location. This year, we hope to have even more local restaurants and beverage purveyors and their wonderful selections of fine food, wine, specialty beers and coffee than ever before! The proceeds from Forks & Corks 2013 enabled Harvesters to provide over one million meals to the hungry throughout our community.
