The American Culinary Federation of Myrtle Beach, a non-profit organization promotes professional camaraderie through dedicated efforts and support with a local network of businesses. Culinary awareness and fundraising by the group to the public is accomplished during the presentations of two different semi-annual seasonal culinary competition events. The Souper Supper in the fall features soups and the Spring Sensation during the springtime features salads and desserts. Both endeavors are successful and only made possible by a local attending audience of enthusiastic foodies interested in sampling and discovering the talented chefs and generous restaurants that donate their own products and time during these two events.

American Culinary Federation of Myrtle Beach (MBACF) is located in Myrtle Beach, SC and is one of more than 230 chapters of the American Culinary Federation, Inc. (ACF). Established in 1929, ACF is the premier professional organization for culinarians in North America.
