The Fort Worth Food + Wine Foundation seeks to foster, celebrate and sustain Fort Worth’s food, beverage and hospitality community.

What We Do


Host an annual career conference for over 150 students interested in the culinary and hospitality industry.


Provided over $113,000 in students scholarships and culinary classroom equipment.


Given over $110,000 to help food + beverage employees experiencing hardships.


Build a savvy community of culinary supporters with more than 25,000 festival attendees over 9 years.

It’s more than good food and good fun – it’s a good cause.

That’s because proceeds from the festival go to the Fort Worth Food + Wine Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that raises funds for local grant programs and culinary scholarships. To date, the Foundation has raised $325,000 for grants and scholarships supporting deserving culinary students from Fort Worth. With your continued support, we can keep this program going strong in the years to come.
