Help Soldiers Eat Better!

Mike is one of our most helpful, long standing members of the Chef2Chef forums. He’s also an Army cook tasked with feeding hungry soldiers still stationed in Afghanistan. The problem: the military provides basic ingredients, but very few of the seasonings necessary to produce great tasting grub.

You can help by donating any of the following ingredients to Mike and his crew. Our soldiers serving overseas will thank you! We’ve had great success with this campaign in the past, but supplies are running low! Note that dollar and big box stores often sell these items for a fantastic price. If you can’t send much, don’t fret–every little bit helps.

If you’d like to participate, please send an email to the following email address to request the proper mailing address: chef2chefnet[at]gmail.com – replace the [at] with a @–I modified it to foil spambots.

Thanks so much!

Thanks so much!
