CLEARWATER, Fla. (FOX 13) - Chefs from around the world converged at St. Vincent De Paul's community kitchen in Clearwater to serve a hot meal to people in need.
The event is part of a collaboration between World Chefs Without Borders and the American Culinary Federation's Tampa Bay Chapter. Together they fed more than 200 people a Hawaiian-themed meal, which included braised pork, potato salad and pineapple cake.
Chef Rene Marquis is the President of the ACF Tampa chapter and said he is proud to be a part of the program.
"As chefs, every meal we serve is important but being able to feed those in need is a humbling experience," Rene said.
This is the first time the event has been held in the United States. World Chefs Without Borders is a global humanitarian aid initiative providing education and resources to those in need and afflicted by natural disasters.
