Hello my name is Terry French, winner of The Food Network's Extreme Chef last season and owner of the unconventional catering company, Culinary Dreams. As a Jersey native and passionate chef it only seems natural to help in feeding the victims of Hurricane Sandy in New Jersey and New York. That’s why myself and other dedicated chefs have set out to Rockaway Beach, the hardest hit shore bordering New Jersey and New York in hopes of helping as many victims as possible. Chef Lance Knowling and I just returned from setting up a mobile kitchen and preparing hot meals for almost a 1,000 people with the generous food donations we received. During my visit to the area I met Michelle Cortez who lives In Rockaway Beach, New York and she has spearheaded relief efforts to the area. Her friends have created this very powerful video which shows the extensive and under reported damage in The Rockaways. The Rockaways Need Our Help.
This trip is the first of many we plan to make. Your donations are what make this possible. Chefs and friends from all over the country are coming together to plan a Thanksgiving Feast food donation to take place in the upcoming few weeks for the Rockaways. Every dollar counts to get us where we need to be and to help those in desperate need of food and supplies.
Help us SHORE up the SHORE today. Any donation is helpful!!!!
*Partners for this campaign include Michelle Cortez and it is funded by Heather Robinson of the Robinson Network. For more information on The Robinson Network click here http://www.robinsonnetwork.org/
