This month, Project Angel Heart cut a major component from meals: the Styrofoam containers.
“We are so thrilled to no longer be using Styrofoam,” said executive chef Brandon Foster. The Styrofoam containers had previously been used for storing and delivering soup to clients.
Now, soup is being packaged in a square container that’s just like our meal trays, only with one compartment. “The new containers we are using are far more convenient not only for storage in the kitchen, but more importantly for our clients,” said Chef Brandon.
“Clients had to transfer the soup from the Styrofoam container to a bowl before heating it up. With the new containers, they won’t have to do that. The new soup trays can be reheated the same way that our regular meal trays are reheated. Since our clients are so sick and don’t have the energy or mobility to cook for themselves, it’s really important that reheating the food is as easy as possible.” Continue reading →
Join us as a volunteer Dining Out For Life® ambassador! This fun, one-day opportunity is a great way for Project Angel Heart volunteers, friends, and supporters from both Denver and Colorado Springs to take part in our largest annual fundraiser and make a BIG difference for Coloradans in need.
On Thursday, April 26, thousands of diners will visit 230+ restaurants and breweries in the Denver/Boulder area to raise funds for Project Angel Heart. You’ll volunteer as a representative at one of these restaurants to tell diners about Project Angel Heart, thank them for dining out, answer questions, and encourage personal donations. It’s a great way to share your passion for Project Angel Heart with the community, and meet like-minded supporters!
This is a hearty vegetarian dish. Textured vegetable protein (TVP) mimics the texture of ground beef, is easy to work with, and can handle a lot of bold flavors and spices, which is one of the main reasons it works so well in this recipe. Try making this chili for a friend and see if they can tell that it’s vegetarian- I bet you they won’t know until you tell them! Continue reading →
