I always love any opportunity to contribute to the fight against hunger. I’ve made countless friendships that will last forever, gained so much knowledge, and experiences that I will hold in my heart as long as I live. Despite all the growth, it was so nice to return to my roots to help one of the very first organizations I spearheaded a food drive for. Every year, the New Hampshire Food Bank partners with WMUR News 9 to put on one of their biggest events to date. The Steel Chef Challenge is a super exciting competition between only the best chefs of the Granite State. They go head to head to whip up a dish with some unusual ingredients (this year it was Doritos, venison, and sardines!) and the panel of prestigious judges picks who the champion will be. This event was incredibly successful. Selling out, we raised lots of awareness just as well as money to solve the hunger epidemic facing our community. It was one of the best nights and even better considering its cause!
