“Just one week after shutting our doors due to the COVID-19 pandemic, my chefs and I were already feeling restless and bored at home. That evening during my daily conversation with a close friend who works at the hospital, we exchanged ideas and one of them stuck – Victory Kitchen. The next day, I proposed this concept to my brother and fellow chefs, their feedback was encouraging and so off we went with the aim of feeding one family a day.
In our first 4 days we fed 16 families and in our second week we fed 54 families. At the end of our third week it was 74 families, with the help of 3 other local chefs and many more wanting to sign up. The response was clear on either side, Victory Kitchen now had a strong purpose within the local community.”
