After pandemic restrictions closed all restaurants in Detroit, Michigan, five chefs from local eateries took careful stock of their kitchen supplies, pooled all their perishables, and started cooking gourmet creations for the city's homeless and food insecure. They call their program "Too Many Cooks in the Kitchen for Good."
Additional food has now been donated, and they are preparing meals for three homeless shelters that are trying to keep Detroit's homeless citizens safe. A representative of one of the shelters said, "The healthy meals are boosting the morale of the population, as well as lifting a financial burden from the mission. Meanwhile, in Barneveld, Wisconsin, a restaurant owned by Clifford Hooks is offering food through its drive-thru or carry out -- for free. Hooks says he wants to make sure struggling neighbors know there's a meal for them if they need one.
