Back to the Clintonville Chili Bowl (for Charity)

Posted by CMH Gourmand on January 24, 2010

Clintonville Chili Bowl III

Who: People that make chili and want to eat chili
What: Chili
When: Saturday, January 30th 5 pm to 7 pm
Where: Maple Grove United Methodist Church, 7 West Henderson Road (N. High Street and Henderson)
Why: Raise money for charity and connect with your community
How: Through the work of volunteers and the coordination of Miriam Bowers Abbott.
Anything else? – Show up and eat.

More Information:

Below I have some information from Miriam:

Judging is TOTALLY by the public. For non-food-bringers, an entry fee of $3 gets three votes, to be distributed as the eater likes. Eaters can buy as many votes as they like. (competitors get three voting slips too . . . ).

Just as an FYI, there is no administration overhead on that fund. It’s all money FOR causes as they are identified. There is also no administration overhead on the ChiliBowl. The space and work are all donated. There is no advertising. The only expense is paper table covering, which should be less than $30.

So, that’s lots of bang (for the community and for participants) for $3 .

This is the third annual Chili bowl and my third time as an attendee and a contestant. I will be crafting two batches of chili. I did not have time to get goat meat but I did get Chorizo and Russian Sausage from Bluescreek Farm Market at North Market and I will see what I can make with that.

Posts from past Chili bowls can be found in the January 2008 as well as January and February 2009 CMH Gourmand archives.
