Mark all your calendars, set every alarm, and tie a string around each finger for the event of the season. On March 30th, a select number of teams will have the opportunity to compete in the first CurEat Your City Scavenger Hunt: Raleigh Edition. Think Amazing Race™ meets food. CurEat has partnered with several organizations to help you explore Raleigh’s culinary and beverage scene. All proceeds will benefit the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle Agriculture Education Program.

Raleigh Magazine, 21C Hotels, Transfer Co. Food Hall, The Assembly, S. Pellegrino and other great companies will all play a role in making this a fun, engaging afternoon. The days events will culminate with a team and public donor party at Transfer Co. Food Hall.

Teams will be limited to 4 people and a maximum of 12 teams will be participating, so spaces will be limited.  Each team must commit to raising $2,500 with some added clues provided for teams that reach higher fundraising thresholds. Grand prize will be a trip for four to Nashville, TN for 3 days and 2 nights at the award winning 21C hotel and an opportunity to enjoy the city’s sights, sounds and, of course, food.

All of our CurEaters, whether they are prominent chefs, creatives or craft-makers, care about the communities where they live and work. You will often see our CurEaters like Vivian Howard, of Chef and the Farmer, and Lydia Clopton, of Pinpoint Restaurant, cooking to raise money for organizations like the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina. There’s also CurEater and chef Chris Shepherd, of Underbelly, who changes the focus of his annual Southern Smoke event to benefit those affected by Hurricane Harvey. This week we want to highlight Raleigh CurEater Nation Hahn and what he is doing to impact his community.

Nation Hahn co-founded the Jamie Kirk Hahn Foundation, which officially launched in October 2013 with its Party with a Purpose, 6 months after the death of his wife. Jamie Hahn was passionate about solving food insecurity, educational disparity and poverty in the community.

This year Nation Hahn and the Jamie Kirk Hahn Foundation will celebrate their 5th Annual Weekend of Purpose on Saturday, October 14th. If you live in the Triangle, we hope you will join us for their Day of Service Saturday morning and/or their Party with a Purpose Saturday night. CurEaters Inez Ribustello, of Tarboro Brewing Company, Phoebe Lawless, of Scratch Bakery, Kevin Barrett, of Dram & Draught, and Sean Lilly Wilson, of Fullsteam Brewery, will be among the talent providing food and drink for the event.
