1440 Multiversity culinary team joins forces with World Central Kitchen to support downtown Santa Cruz evacuees
1440 Multiversity is very proud to join forces with World Central Kitchen to prepare dinner for evacuees impacted by the CZU Lightning Complex fire that has ravaged our beautiful region. Led by Executive Chef Kenny Woods, 1440 Multiversity organized and deployed a culinary team to downtown Santa Cruz on Thurs., Aug. 27, where they mindfully prepared over 250 meals for first responders, displaced families, and other vulnerable individuals.
The dinner menu featured delicious seasonal items: Braised lamb (roasted mushroom as the plant-based option); late-summer tomato sugo and lemon gremolata; and summer squash succotash. Get a taste of Kitchen Table at home with our late-summer sugo recipe here.
Our heartfelt thanks to all of the first responders on the front lines of this crisis; we are grateful that the 1440 Multiversity campus is safe, and we look forward to serving Santa Cruz County residents in even more ways over the coming weeks in an effort to create and maintain hope and healing for our greater community.
