Men Who Cook is back!

TEAM’s 16th Annual Men Who Cook fundraiser will be held on Saturday, April 20, 2024. We had the most successful year EVER last year, raising close to $80,000 for our programs, and we are working towards another record year!

We hope you will be able to join us for an evening of culinary creations from over 30 teams of volunteer chefs in our community, along with drinks, dancing and raffles.

TEAM’s Men Who Cook fundraiser is essential to keep programs such as Meals on Wheels, housing and food support programs, income tax assistance, home heating help, the regional diaper bank, medical transportation for older adults, and so many more running and able to meet the needs of all who are in need of a little help. With more people than ever turning to TEAM in the most difficult of circumstances, we hope you will stand alongside us as we aim to ensure all who turn to us have the support and resources they need. And by attending Men Who Cook, you will be a part of making a meaningful difference in the lives of over 17,000 individuals and families who turn to TEAM each year.

Space is limited! Please purchase your tickets as soon as possible. Tickets include everything – all you can eat food, drinks, music & dancing and fun – and can be purchased via check or cash to TEAM, Inc. 30 Elizabeth St, Derby, CT Attn: Men Who Cook.
