Sips & Suppers is a major celebration of food and community in the Washington, DC metro area. Now in its seventh year, Sips & Suppers began in 2009 as the brainchild of Alice Waters to raise the awareness of homelessness and hunger in the nation’s capital and to promote efforts to develop sustainable and local solutions to these challenges.
The weekend supports the wonderful work of DC Central Kitchen and Martha’s Table, organizations that serve the neediest individuals in the nation’s capital. Since its inception, Sips & Suppers has raised over 1 million dollars in financing for the essential programs run by these organizations. The event is proudly hosted by celebrated chefs José Andrés, Joan Nathan & Alice Waters.
In 2015, Sips & Suppers will be held on the weekend of January 24–25.
On Saturday, January 24, 2015, Sips celebrates the contribution young people make to feeding and supporting their community. This lively cocktail reception features top artisan chefs and mixologists preparing their signature dishes and drinks. Held at the dramatic space, the Newseum on Pennsylvania Avenue, in Washington, DC, and featuring a live jazz band, it is a fun and educational evening. Read full details on Sips.
On Sunday, January 25, 2015, Suppers features some of the country’s finest chefs preparing meals in private homes throughout the city. This year, we expect that Suppers will be served at more than 30 homes in the metro area to more than 500 guests. Renowned chefs from the DC region, from across the country, and, indeed, across the world, donate their time and skills to participate in these extraordinary evenings featuring great food and wine, and stimulating conversation. Read full details on Suppers.
DC has some of the best chefs in the country, and each year these generous chefs donate their time, talent and product to help DC Central Kitchen and Martha’s Table run a successful Sips & Supper event and help support the neediest individuals in the nation’s capital. This event would not be possible without them.
