Meals for the Food Pantries

Thu, 04/30/2020 - 11:53

The owners of the Honest Man Restaurants, which include Nick and Toni’s, Rowdy Hall, Townline BBQ, Coche Comedor, and La Fondita, announced on Friday that they are teaming up with the East End Food Institute to prepare and deliver 400 family meals weekly -- enough to feed 1,600 individuals -- to the Springs Food Pantry and the Heart of the Hamptons food pantry in Southampton.

Staff from each organization will prepare the meals at the institute’s industrial kitchen.

“It’s a trifecta of wins,” said Toni Ross, one of the restaurants’ owners. “We will be re-employing restaurant workers, supporting local farmers and purveyors, and addressing food insecurity at a time of great need.”

Kate Fullam, the executive director of the institute, added that the initiative fits perfectly with her group’s mission to advocate for local food producers. Donations in support of the effort can be made by visiting eastendfood.org.
