Photos from Chili Cook-off in a Box Launch Party/Share the Bounty Benefit Chili Contest at The Meat Market

I woke up pondering the extraordinary diversity of chili recipes and crock pot styles on display at yesterday’s Chili Cook-off in a Box Launch Party/Share the Bounty Benefit Chili Contest at The Meat Market. It was chili as window into the soul, and it revealed some beautiful things about our community. My sincere thanks to everybody who participated in and supported the event. We raised $545, which is enough for Berkshire Grown to buy a full CSA farm share to help feed hungry families next year.

Everyone who attended the contest was given a spoon to sample the chili entries and a bean to vote with by placing it it in the Mason jar in front of their favorite one.
