Root to Table Sponsors

When we first started our Root to Table culinary series, we knew that success wouldn’t come overnight. To achieve Taste of Blue Ridge’s mission of connecting consumers to the owners, chefs, and farmers of the Blue Ridge, we’d need a friendly, helping hand that believed in our mission just as much as we did. We’re so proud to showcase our generous sponsors, of which without their support, we wouldn’t be where we are today.

A word from a local food distributor devoted to locally sourced food…

Root to Table Sponsor, Schenck Foods Co.

For over 90 years, Schenck Foods Co. has made it their mission to not only deliver the highest quality products, but to also provide excellent service to their customers.  Schenck’s is a wholesale distributor to a plethora of restaurants, businesses, and customers on the east coast.  Schenck Foods knows that the way to the community’s heart is through their local businesses and farmers, of which are vitally important to Northern Virginia’s agricultural and food scene. Schenck Foods is proud to work with each farmer, owner, and customer, big or small, on a personal level to ensure quality products and services.

Check out their Local Food Bazaar the last Saturday of each month.

“As the fourth generation of the Schenck / Huntsberry family to lead the company, I am humbled by the challenge and opportunity to grow, innovate, and continue to serve Winchester and the surrounding communities.

We promise to always offer top quality diverse products and services at competitive prices.

With your support and patronage, we will continue to be the top supplier for restaurants, businesses, and everyday people for the next 90 years!

On behalf of my family, and the greater Schenck Foods family, I welcome you.”           — Jason Huntsberry, President & CEO
