One Chef, One Dish, One San Diego
An evening of Community Spirit and Giving
Three years ago, I learned about the San Diego Food Bank’s Backpack Program providing weekend food packages to chronically hungry elementary school students from low-income households who are at risk of hunger over the weekend when free school meals are unavailable. I never thought that kids in our backyard would go hungry over the weekend. I immediately called the CEO of the Food Bank to set up a meeting. Jim Floros gave me the tour of the Food Bank and outlined the need. I came out of that meeting and called my chef friend William Bradley of Addison Grand Del Mar and Fishmonger extraordinaire Tommy Gomes of Catalina Offshore Produce.
With their support, I created the One Chef, One Dish, San Diego. Each month a great San Diego chef comes to HCG and demonstrates their talent when either the proceeds go toward the program or the SDFB’s top donors are invited and encouraged to fund more schools. This is one of the proudest moments of my career to be able to give back to the community that has supported me.
