On Thursday, March 4 at 6pm, join us virtually for the “Ruth Brinker Book Celebration,” a free, special event to celebrate Ruth Brinker’s legacy over the past 35 years, with highlights from our newly published limited-edition book, “Open Hearts.”

This digital gathering will include a welcome by our CEO Paul Hepfer, a spotlight on the 15 celebrity-chef recipes featured in the book by Chef David Verzello, a discussion by Open Hearts Author Sean Elder and former POH Executive Director Tom Nolan, and an appearance by Chef Adrian Barrow who will discuss the secret sauce to our success.
