Caring Chefs

Ticket and sponsorship information coming soon!


Join us for the 40th Annual Caring Chefs!

Celebrating its 40th year, Caring Chefs stands as a beloved annual tradition in Jacksonville, uniting the area’s finest chefs, sommeliers, and brewers with guests and volunteers. For over 120 years, CHS has been dedicated to serving children and families, fostering a legacy grounded in providing safety, security, hope, and brighter futures.

All event proceeds will benefit children and families in Northeast Florida through:

  • Behavioral Health
    • We partner with parents to provide practical and emotional support as we empower them to become their child’s first — and most important — teacher. Mental health issues can significantly impact children’s educational, mental, social and physical well-being, as well as their family peace and stability. We provide personalized treatment and support to equip children and families with tools, coping skills and connections so they can find hope, stability, and opportunities for happiness and success.
  • Community Solutions
    • Community Partnership Schools address barriers to learning including hunger, mental health struggles, homelessness and more by bringing together high-quality academics, health care, counseling, support, mentoring and more — right at their own school.
  • Early Childhood & Family Development
    • We are deeply invested in the well-being of families. Through the nurturing support of Healthy Start program and Healthy Families initiatives, CHS ensures that every child receives the care and resources they need to thrive. Through Family Development programs, CHS provides crucial family life education, fostering environments where healthy dynamics and relationships can blossom, creating lasting impacts for generations to come.

Together, we will help more children grow up in safe, strong families.

Thank you to our sponsors!*

About CHS

We believe in the potential of every child and family. We believe children and families are stronger than the odds stacked against them and, together, we can create opportunities that bring brighter futures.

Life can be hard, and no child, no family should face the tough times alone.

This allows us to meet families at the crossroads of their struggles and successes, to empower them to overcome challenges before they turn into crises. With your support, we deliver a “cradle to career” approach — meeting kids and families with the right solutions at the right time, no matter where they are in life.
