The city’s business and philanthropic community came together to raise more than $105,000 for the Hungry Hearts fundraiser on Feb. 15 for Our Place.

Four top local chefs used their culinary expertise and imagination to see who could create the most popular savoury bite. Chef Castro Boateng of Castro Boateng catering took home the top chef trophy.

Our Place said the funds couldn’t have come at a better time as the organization continues to experience a significant increase in demand for services.
