The Rochester Public Market held its "Festival of Food" Monday night to benefit Foodlink.
More than 1,200 people showed up to help raise money for a good cause at the local wine and food tasting event, which promotes local foods.
Samples were provided from area restaurants, wineries, bakeries and breweries, and organizers wore orange t-shirts in support of Hunger Action Month.
"It's a great opportunity for all these organization to promote what they do; but, it's also a way for us to raise awareness about hunger," said Jeanette Batiste, Foodlink COO.
All of the proceeds raised went to Foodlink, a regional food bank that serves 10 counties.
