Revel Center (1535 Monroe Ave NW, Grand Rapids, MI 49505)

The Franciscan Life Process Center is a non-profit organization that focuses on providing services that support healthy human development. Each year, this event promotes the work of our counseling programs to educate and offer personal support toward achieving mental health. This year our LIFEfest event is focused on showcasing local foods and beverages. Each chef will be given local in-season produce from our farm and local farms in Kent County to create a small plate to pair with a local beverage.

Attendees will enjoy the creations made by participating chefs and vote on which one they like best. Please go to Lifefest2019.Evenbrite.com to register.
