Today’s Solutions: December 06, 2023

When chef Andrew Wong closed the doors of his restaurant to slow the spread of COVID-19, he decided not to let his ingredients go to waste and started producing cook-at-home boxes to donate to at risk-populations and other vulnerable individuals in need of food during the pandemic.

His restaurant, A.Wong, holds a Michelin star for its classic Chinese dishes and he is partnering with local charities to bring his delicacies to those in need. The team is producing 50 to 100 boxes a day for volunteers to distribute to people in isolation, food banks, and the homeless.

“There are things in this world which are more important than profit and money, and if we go under, at least try and go under with a good heart,” he said. The boxes include recipes with fresh vegetables, delicious noodles, and specialty sauces straight from the chef himself.

This is a great solution for preventing purchased food from going to waste while also caring for the community’s most vulnerable members. In a time of uncertainty, a delicious professionally prepared meal might just bring some comfort and clarity to someone’s day.
