22 Mar [Westfair] Westchester chefs brew up a million-gallon idea: Soup for the needy and financially strapped
(Westfair) – The mandated closing of restaurants due to the COVID-19 outbreak means there’s a lot of excess kitchen capacity. In Westchester County, a group of chefs, restarauteurs and a brewer has embarked on a program to use that excess capacity to help people in need.
They call the program the Million Gallon Challenge and the goal is to cook that amount of soup and distribute it to the hungry. The soup will be packaged in quart containers and a large portion of it will be frozen for future distribution.
