Nibbles & Sips Fundraising Gala

Held Saturday, February 26, 2022  •  6:00 – 7:00 pm MST

Watch the recorded event if you missed the live event (or if you’d like to re-live it)! The event begins at 25:58.

There's still time to "Win" while helping to nourish lives.

You can still get in on these 2 opportunities, even if you missed the event.

1. Raise a Virtual Paddle

Virtual events just aren’t the same! While our 2022 virtual gala had positive outcomes, we only reached 85% of our goal. Nibbles & Sips is the single greatest fundraising source to support the programs and services we offer throughout the year.

Our last in-person gala was in 2019, and we look forward to returning to this more social gathering in 2023!

We hope you’ll join us in-person next year!

Save the Date: Saturday, February 25, 2023

For over a decade, our traditional fundraising event has been an in-person food and beverage tasting event that provided over 50 restaurants and alcohol sampling stations. We paired many of the popular gala components with a casual, upbeat atmosphere that drew over 600 people together for a hoot of a good time. Due to the pandemic restrictions on an event of this kind and size, we moved to a virtual event for 2021 and 2022, with the hope of providing a similar, fun experience that also kept everyone safe.

Please join us as a sponsor of the 2023 Virtual Nibbles & Sips Virtual Gala! Together, we will raise funds to support the transformational initiatives that are helping more community members find the hunger alleviation resources needed to overcome disparity and live healthier lives. The Nibbles & Sips Gala is a unique evening full of inspiration, hope, and community. Witness and be part of the extraordinary IFCS mission coming to life.

Many thanks to our generous Diamond & Platinum Level Event Sponsors:
