No other event provides one-stop access to Kansas City cuisine like Forks & Corks, a massive annual sampling of some of the area’s top food and drink purveyors, who join Harvesters to fight hunger. Nara, Gram & Dun and the Rieger Hotel Grill & Exchange are among the dozens of restaurants scheduled to be on hand for this year’s event, which runs from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Thursday at the Grand Ballroom at the Kansas City Convention Center. Last year’s event raised more than $200,000 for Harvesters and provided more than a million meals to those in need. Tickets are $90, with VIP and group ticket packages available from $500 to $1,500; details at harvesters.org.
