The Houston Kosher Chili Cookoff is all about bringing the entire Jewish Community together for a day of food, fun and festivities to raise funds for important non-profit organizations in the Houston Jewish Community.

It is important to note that our friends, Josh Berry and Sam Cohen, were a part of our first annual Houston Kosher Chili Cook-off, and will forever be in our hearts and minds each year as we plan and attend this important community event. Like everyone on the planning team, they realized how important it was to bring everyone from the community together for a day of food and fun with this unique community-wide event, while raising funds for worthy organizations in the community.
