Today he is running the helm at V-Eats Modern Vegan in Trinity Groves, a cozy little hot spot that is thriving selling only vegan dishes to pretty much anyone who loves food. Continue reading

In May, I was asked to participate in a dinner benefiting Genesis. I do charity events all the time but this time I really wanted to know what I was donating to. I asked to have a private tour of the shelter and Chefs Carolanne Treadwell, Janice Provost and Dina Butterfield came with. We were so pleasantly surprised to see that this place felt nothing like a shelter but more of a home. A safe environment with apartments, schools, full cafeteria with 3 healthy meals being served daily. They had therapy rooms and even a garden. But we weren’t all smiles for long.

LUCK in Trinity Groves never shied away from anything non-conventional. Think about their unusual doughnut-beer pairings that they perform on a regfular basis.

Chefs & Seeds 2nd annual fundraising event will be held on Wednesday, November 4th at 3015 at Trinity Groves from 7pm – 10pm, benefiting Seeds of Africa’s mission to create world-class schools and community centers in African communities.
Chefs & Seeds 2nd annual event is part of the two-year multi-city Dream School Campaign raising $2.2 Million to build a school and community center that will serve 600 students and their families in Adama, Ethiopia. Over $1 Million has already been raised towards the campaign.

I realized that the children I grew up with and the children I went to school with had two different trajectories in life that seemed to me extremely unfair.” Continue reading
