Here's some news about Trinity's Services And Food for the Homeless (SAFH) on Ninth Street and Avenue B. Via the EVG inbox...
This past week, our administrative director, Alex Lawrence, was selected as one of the competitors on Food Network's Chopped.
The episode had a Thanksgiving theme — titled Turkey Day Heroes — featuring employees and volunteers who work with various soup kitchens or feeding programs.
Contestants are asked to make dishes with "mystery ingredients" that are only revealed to them minutes before they begin cooking. Alex was able to make it all the way through to the end, and ended up winning the competition! If you haven't had a chance to watch the episode, upcoming showings can be found here, in addition to wherever you stream television.
By working alongside other contestants who have committed themselves to feeding the hungry, Chopped was able to bring to a wide audience the very real challenges and needs that organizations like ours face.
The episode airs again tonight at 11 on the Food Network. Details here.
