Operation Food Search (OFS), a non-profit hunger relief organization, will hold its first Operation Barbecue virtual cooking class led by Sugarfire’s award-winning executive chef Matt Glickert. Chef Glickert will guide beginners and foodies alike through the preparation of a full meal including chicken, shrimp and vegetable kabobs, creamy lemon herb coleslaw, and grilled Yukon gold potato salad. The interactive event is presented by OFS’s Friends Board, a dynamic group of young professionals vested in feeding the community’s hungry. Proceeds from Operation Barbecue will support Operation Backpack, which provides weekend meals to food-insecure kids throughout the school year. Tickets, which are $65 for two adults or a $100 family pack that serves four people, include virtual event access plus ingredients for the meal. A beer pairing that includes four cans of 4 Hands City Wide Beer is an additional $12. Sugarfire meal kits are available for pick up at their Wentzville, Valley Park, Olivette, downtown, and Winghaven locations.
