The tastiest event in Woodbury this month might just be Christian Cupboard Emergency Food Shelf’s annual Chili Hubbub. Families, including young kids, are invited to spend an afternoon tasting chili (you guessed it) and other comfort-food offerings—mac and cheese, anyone?—from local restaurants. Call it a chili scavenger hunt; try them all, and decide which is your favorite. Best of all, all proceeds from the event benefit the food shelf, which serves neighbors in need in Woodbury, Oakdale, Landfall and part of Maplewood.

In fact, this year’s gala theme is Share Your Love. Guests will be treated to food, drinks, music from the Lake String Quartet and a performance from comedian John DeBoer.
