EDMOND — Nearly 1,000 hungry Oklahomans get hot, nutritious meals each week thanks to a small, local charity. Edmond Mobile Meals has been helping feed the elderly, disabled and homebound for nearly 40 years.

This year, local musician Kyle Dillingham will be joining forces with the nonprofit to ensure no one goes hungry in the community. Dillingham will be headlining EMM’s first annual EdFest — a fundraising event featuring local brews, bites and music.

Guests will have the opportunity to taste a number of beers from local breweries including RoughTail, Battered Boar, Tallgrass, Mustang and Huebert as well as enjoy local cuisine from Taste of Soul Chicken and Waffle, Roxy’s Ice Cream Social, Moto Chef Mobile Diner, La Gumbo Ya Ya, Papa Dio’s and Off the Hook Seafood among others.

EdFest will take place from 6-10 p.m. at the Edmond Farmer’s Market on Friday

Tickets for the beer tasting can be purchased online. To learn more about EdFest or to buy beer tasting tickets, visit www.edfestokc.com.

“Edmond Mobile Meals provides more than food for our clients, we bring friendship, hope and a sense of security to their lives,” said Piper Riggs, EMM executive director. “There are many in our community who have to choose between keeping the lights on, paying for medication or buying food. Those are our friends and neighbors and we believe no one should have to make that choice. We want to invite everyone to come enjoy EdFest and help us ensure that no one goes hungry in our community.”
