On Friday, July 29th we gathered together to celebrate the healthier side of Columbus food scene at our first Healthy Bites event. I hope you had a great time trying tasty local foods with wellness in mind. A big thank you to all the local businesses who came out to show off their menus. Thanks to all our guests who participated in the event, we appreciate your support and enjoyed your company! Check out all the photos from the event below.

A big thanks to the The Ohio Poultry Association for partnering with us at this event and bringing their egg chair for us to take all kinds of fun pictures in. Thanks to DJ Charles Erickson for providing musical entertainment throughout the night and to Bylined for helping us share an amazing realtime slideshow of photos during the event. We were amazed by the live yoga demos by Art of Yoga and hope everyone enjoyed the current exhibits at The Columbus Museum of Art including the Picasso exhibit!
An extra special thank you to the CU team and that helped make this event happen: Ashley Brannon, Nancy Colvin, Susan Post, Tyler Wiseman, Codi Giesey, Lauren Sega, Brent Warren and Anne and Walker Evans. I am so lucky to work with such a wonderful group of people who are willing to help make each event better then the next. Thank you to all our volunteers: Katie Suty, Diana Gryniuk, Rebecca Dolan and photographer Zoe Sturges who helped make this event fun!
All of the attendees of the event helped us raise funds for The Godman Guild, and the Columbus Underground Best Bites event series have now collectively raised over $19,000 for local charities since launching in August 2014.
