Empty bellies will find their fill at the Gonzales Rotary Club’s annual Food Fest on Feb. 27 at the Lamar-Dixon Expo Center TradeMart Building.

The event benefits the St. Theresa Food Bank.

“Last year’s Food Fest had hundreds of people attend with over 40 restaurants and food vendors participating,” said Tracy Browning, 2018 chairperson of the Food Fest Committee. “We hope to make this year’s Food Fest better than ever. Come join us for great fellowship, fabulous food and help a worthy cause to feed needy people in our area.”

The club will collect canned goods and boxed nonperishable foods for the food pantry during the Food Fest.

Tickets are $25 in advance or $30 at the door. A limited number of tickets are available. Purchase tickets at Gonzales City Hall, St. Theresa of Avila Catholic Church, Jeansonne & Spillers Dentistry, Ascension Funeral Home, Lofton Staffing and Ascension Council on Aging or by emailing
