The Final Table: Indianapolis postponed until August

by | Events, 2020 Final Table, Culinary Crossroads

In light of the continuing developments of the COVID-19 virus and an announcement yesterday from the Governor of Indiana, the World Food Championships (WFC) and its Indiana partners — Visit Indy, Ivy Tech Community College, Sysco and Team Indiana — just announced that The $100,000 Final Table and corresponding food events have been rescheduled for August 5-9, 2020. 

“While we have been eagerly and diligently planning the crescendo moment of Food Sport, the last thing we want to do is endanger the health of our colleagues and community during this continuing crisis that not only impacts Indy, but also our nation. We certainly understand and will follow all precautionary guidelines from Indiana and its leaders, so postponing our event is certainly the right thing to do at this time.”

– World Food Championships CEO Mike McCloud
