Tell us a little about yourself!
I am a business executive who just happens to be a great home chef. The pandemic has touched all of us, but particularly our local grocery store workers who are literally keeping all of us fed
Tell us about your #MakeWaves project.
For the last three weeks, I have been cooking homemade meals for 2 grocers in the local area. Because each grocer can have up to 100 employees in the store at a time, I have recruited 3 other home chefs to help with the work. Last week, we fed over 200 employees.
I would like to expand our efforts to twice a week vs once a week. This grant would allow me to do that, by augmenting our home cooked food with food purchased at local restaurants. This would also be a big win for the restaurants and their employees.
The store employees are so grateful and my three colleagues who are cooking are all excited about making a difference in our community of Lakeway, TX.
