Hello loyal food lovers. Just wanted to share with you two recent stories I worked on with Serious Eats, my favorite food blog of all time. This summer, they launched a campaign to talk about the importance of volunteering within the food industry and helping those who needed good food the most. Many of us have luxuries that others don’t, which is why sometimes donating only an hour or two of your time to great local organizations can make such a huge difference in people’s lives.

Here are two stories that show how far a helping hand can go to make people happy. And thanks again to Ed Levine for asking me to be his Serious Eats storyteller. It was a blast to witness these charities in person and meet the wonderful people who dedicate so much hard work for the benefit of others. Enjoy and hope you get inspired.

1. God’s Love We Deliver (NYC) – and be on the lookout for “Natalie”…she makes this story sing…

2. City Harvest (NYC)

Happy volunteering! Or if you ever would like to volunteer together in New York, give me a holler. I’m game!
