The 10th annual Festival of Food held Monday night in Rochester featured more than 120 locally-owned restaurants, breweries and wineries.
One hundred percent of the proceeds will benefit Foodlink, the area food bank.
During the event, a panel of judges named the best taste contest winners in a range of categories.
Organizers say each year the festival grows. This year alone, 30 more vendors were added to the event.
"This is our biggest fundraiser event. Essentially, this is equivalent to a gala that other non-profits would do. But, because we're Foodlink, we say food is our common denominator so we thought, what better place to host the event than the public market," said Terra Keller, Foodlink events manager.
Foodlink has served the 10-county region for more than 35 years.
