Local Chefs. Local Restaurants. Bringing Community Together.

3rd Annual ZESTOLEDO!

Last year we raised over $100,000 in one evening!

FIRST – Once again, we are partnering with the Toledo Mud Hens to host ZESTOLEDO at Hensville Park and Fleetwood’s Tap Room!

SECOND – Over 30 of Toledo’s top local restaurants will showcase the culinary talents of the area’s best Chefs who are donating their time and cuisines to support a great cause. Enjoy an evening of endless gourmet food, desserts, and wine tastings from the best establishments in town. Dance the night away with our live band and enter the ZESTOLEDO raffle where you can win one of ten amazing prizes valued at $500 to $2500 all while supporting our wonderful Toledo community!

THIRD – Most importantly – 100% of event proceeds benefit local nonprofit organizations that feed, educate, and provide shelter to those in our area. This year we have added three additional grant recipients to our list of beneficiaries. Our 2020 grant recipients are Aurora Project, Catholic Charities Opportunity Kitchen, Cherry Street Mission Ministries, ProMedica Ebeid Center, Toledo Day Nursery, Toledo GROWs, and Toledo Northwestern Ohio Food Bank.     Zest of Toledo is a local 501c3 and not affiliated with any national organization.
