LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) — Some of Louisville’s top chefs gathered in one place Sunday for a cause near and dear to their industry.

The second annual “Taste for Life” was held to help those suffering from depression and anxiety in the food service industry.

Four Pegs helped present the event where attendees walked and sampled dishes from 24 local restaurants.

It also aims to raise awareness of suicide prevention four years after the death of celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain.

“We came up with an idea, one of us put out a post on Facebook, a couple of our chef friends kind of got involved and said, ‘Hey, if you’ve done something for Bourdain Day, we’d love to get involved,'” Kahlil Kennedy, co-organizer of the event, said . “The snowball is completely out of our control.”

The National Alliance for Mental Illness, The Pete Foundation and Bridgehaven Mental Health Services were some of the beneficiaries of the event.
