About the Event

Join us and make a difference

Intimate partner violence is an epidemic affecting 1 in 3 women. Calls to the Philadelphia Domestic Violence Hotline highlight the great need for services that provide physical and emotional safety to victims of domestic violence. At Dish It Up, you have the opportunity to give financially towards our mission, and our unique programs that offer hope. Join us to hear the stories of survivors whose lives have been changed by Women Against Abuse!

Dish It Up provides delicious culinary delights and a mission focused evening of fun for more than 500 guests in celebration of the movement against domestic violence.

Dish It Up is the only fundraising event and food tasting competition in Philadelphia featuring all female chefs. Dish It Up provides women leading the way in Philadelphia’s culinary arts with an opportunity to showcase their skills—and all for a great cause!

The funds raised through Dish It Up support Women Against Abuse, Philadelphia’s only comprehensive domestic violence service provider. Throughout its 40 year history, Women Against Abuse has been diligently working to expand access to life-saving services for victims and their children. As the leading provider of domestic violence services in Philadelphia, Women Against Abuse reaches 15,000 people through its emergency safe havens, transitional and permanent supportive housing programs, legal aid, hotline counseling, community educational and training and advocacy!
