Send us to the World Food Championships

Hi I'm Chef Kymberlee! Myself and team Missouri have been given the chance to go to the World Food Championships in Dallas, Texas this year! While this is the opportunity of a life time to compete in the biggest cooking contest in the world, it like everything costs money. As people in the service industry we are hardworking people just looking for a chance to do something great. This is our chance. We won a Grand Championship in the Show-Me series burger contest and have guaranteed our spot in the big show. While we won our entry fee we still have to pay for our own ingredients, equipment, travel, and lodging for a week in Dallas, TX. Anything helps, even a share. Thank you so much for your help!
