Culinary Philanthropy: Memphis Food & Wine Festival

Exquisite cuisine and magnificent wine are certainly major components of the third installment of the Memphis Food & Wine Festival (MFWF), but the heart of this spectacular event is FedExFamilyHouse (FEFH). It costs more than $2 million dollars annually to operate FEFH, and Sherry Chimenti, along with the handful of MFWF founders, saw that need as an opportunity to give back. “The moment we agreed Memphis was starving for a first-class food and wine festival, it was an immediate and unanimous decision to benefit this compassionate local charity.” Since the Festival’s inception in 2016, they have presented two festivals and four wine dinners. But more importantly, they have donated over $225,000 to FEFH.
