Now in its sixth year, the Food Glorious Food art show and associated 2011 Calendar will be unveiled by the Zenith Community Arts Foundation (ZCAF) at Chevy Chase Pavilion on Wednesday, December 1 at a Calendar Launch Celebration & Silent Auction on the Terrace Level at Embassy Suites Hotel, from 6:30-9:30pm. This year’s theme, Sustainable & Scrumptious, was selected to create greater awareness of the environment and promote healthy, sustainable dining.  Proceeds will benefit the Capital Area Food Bank, and WUSA 9 News Anchor Andrea Roane will serve as the evening’s emcee.    

Cooked up by ZCAF Founder and Executive Director, Margery E. Goldberg in 2005, Food Glorious Food’s menu of food, art and charity is a recipe for success that has raised more than $115,000 for the food bank in five years, while pleasing the palates of art patrons and foodies through a unique collaboration between artists and restaurants. Area businesses add spice to the mix by sponsoring the calendar and donating items for the auction.  The overall project raises money through calendar sales, a percentage of proceeds from a related month-long food art exhibition and the Calendar Launch & Silent Auction.
