The Kitchens of New Bern Tour

Kitchens at New Bern TourThe Kitchens of New Bern Tour is a unique opportunity to explore the heart of some of historic New Bern’s most outstanding residences, as well as Tryon Palace’s Kitchen Office and Garden on Saturday, September 27, 2014 from 10 am to 4 pm.

Join homeowners who have opened their kitchens in support of the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina at New Bern inviting you to garner ideas for designing your own new kitchen or renovating the existing center of your home. Capture the newest industry ideas and learn about state of the art products from our sponsors. Savor special tastings by local chefs and enjoy a day of fun in historic downtown New Bern.

“My sister and I enjoyed a lovely day in your city and thought the kitchen tour was great. What a wonderful idea for a fund raiser!” wrote Eileen Willer after the 2013 inaugural Kitchens at New Bern Tour. Proceeds from the second annual Kitchens at New Bern Tour will again benefit the Food Bank’s New Bern Branch.

Those who supported the inaugural event in 2013 helped to put 68,000 meals on the tables of their neighbors in need. Unfortunately, the problem of hunger is present year round for more than 50,000 individuals, children, and seniors in the New Bern Branch service area. For every $1 donated, the Food Bank can provide 5 meals, or $10 worth of food.

Don’t miss out on this exciting opportunity to support the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina at New Bern! View the official flyer that lists locations and additional details.
