Chef Jack McDavid is known for launching the farm to table movement in Philadelphia and creating the Down Home Diner, which offers top quality southern food at an affordable price. He is also famous for his trademark overalls and "Save the Farm" cap. But did you know he is also famous for charitable works?
Jack says, "Thanksgiving is a time to be grateful for what we have, and part of that is remembering those that don't have. My momma always taught me to give back and help others, even when we didn't have much. Well, that's a lesson I've learned and I try to pass on."
Clearly Jack learned the lesson well; this Thanksgiving, he'll be providing dinner for the residents of St. John's Hospice, a shelter for homeless men in Center City.
The menu will be identical to the one Jack serves at his family's table later that day.
Smoked Country Ham
String Beans in Garlic with Sauteed Almonds
Apple Cranberry Crisp
Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone!
