Epicurean Delights

"Epicurean Delights" is a very unique fundraiser with multiple purposes: to expose a vast array of talented, professional chefs and firehouse cooks to the public and raise funds for the Fresno Fire Chief's Foundation program, which will benefit the entire community.  Guests of "Epicurean Delights" stroll through Central Distributing's innovative showroom where fully functional kitchens allow select chefs to work their magic.

"Epicurean Delights" has afforded the Fresno Fire Chief's Foundation the honor of introducing and continuing the "Helmets are Cool!" program in the community.  Launched in 2005, this program has distributed over 5,000 safety helmets to children in the Fresno/Clovis area.  Each school year, all elementary schools throughout Fresno, West Fresno, Central, Clovis and North Central School Districts receive posters and trading cards for classrooms K-6.  Additionally, fire crews distribute free safety helmets to children seen riding bicycles or skateboards without helmets.

Several other community programs, such as the Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation's Champ Camp for burn victims, the Trauma Intervention Program (TIP), the American Red Cross, and the Boys and Girls Clubs of Fresno County are supported through the revenue generated from "Epicurean Delights."

The continuance of these programs and establishment of other programs, i.e., the Risk Watchers safety education program for elementary school age children; Firefighters Creating Memories, which provides physically disadvantaged children and their families a trip to the Big Fresno Fair with the assistance of firefighters; and support of the Box Cart Races depend on the support of generous individuals and organizations in our community.  Several sponsorship levels are available.  Please consider partnering with the Fresno Fire Chief's Foundation to help make the Greater Fresno Area a safer home for everyone.  After all, you don't need a uniform to fight fire.
