The shock waves sent by the coronavirus pandemic throughout the community and the world have had profound impacts on all segments of the food industry.

While restaurants were hit hard by the mandatory closures and continuing shortages, they also stepped up to help in ways that use their skills. Some added pantry items to their take-out menus to provide “one-stop” ordering for their customers, others baked hundreds of loaves of bread and some restaurants partnered with local food banks, offering their unused inventory and their facilities for making meals.

Thanks for this. I just bought the Kindle book ($6). The recipes look great - simple, but not simple minded. I think I'll try the Grilled Maple Chicken with Smoky Greens.
