Folks gathered for the "Taste of Central Pennsylvania" at Strawberry Square in Harrisburg on Sunday.
This year's fundraiser gave food lovers samples of the latest signature menu items from local restaurants and catering companies, along with wineries and breweries.
Samples included everything from soup and sandwiches to roast duck.
There was also live music, raffles and a champagne reception.
"Our event features about 50 restaurants and providers of food and beverages, and we're just going to have a great time sampling their wonderful chef creations here today, and all of that is to raise money for Central Pennsylvania Food bank to fight hunger," says Joe Arthur, Executive Director of the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank.
The Food Bank provides nourishment to more than 55,000 people in need every week.
