FCS Chowdah Challenge

Freeport Community Services Chowdah Challenge
Saturday October 7th
11:00 – 2pm
Porch of the L.L.Bean Home store

The 23rd Annual Freeport Community Services Chowdah Challenge! Come join in the most delicious event of the year. A fantastic day at the L.L.Bean Home store where  big crowds of locals and visitors from afar come to sample and vote for Freeport Maine’s best chowder. Each year local restaurants generously donate their traditional and gourmet clam and seafood chowders to benefit Freeport Community Services programs. Ten restaurants will compete for two coveted awards: The People’s Choice Award and the Judges’ Award for “Best Chowdah”. Cost is $10/per person, and all proceeds will go to support FCS.

The public will taste samples from each of the ten restaurants and vote for their favorite chowdah – the winning restaurant will be given the “People’s Choice Award”.

 Freeport Community Services is a community-run, community-based organization that coordinates programs and supplies a handful of direct services to our neighbors in the towns of Freeport and Pownal, Maine. Services include a Food Pantry with essential and emergency supplies for our neighbors who need it.
