Les Dames D’Escoffier Charleston Chapter Introduces Vital Hospitality CHS

Published

on

The Charleston Chapter of Les Dames D’Escoffier (LDEI), a worldwide philanthropic society of professional women leaders in the fields of food, fine beverage and hospitality, launched Vital Hospitality CHS, a fundraising and service program for COVID-19 recovery. Its mission is to feed healthcare workers and first responders while supporting the local restaurant community.

In two weeks, the organization has provided more than 150 meals by locally owned businesses including Red Orchids, Verde, Callie’s Hot Little Biscuit, Grey Ghost Bakery, Salthouse Catering, and Duvall Catering to the MUSC University Medical Center, Roper St. Francis Healthcare, and Trident Health System personnel.

“Our goal is to connect the needs of our front-line heroes with Charleston’s independent restaurants,” Megan Deschaine, one of the founders of Vital Hospitality CHS, said. “So far, members of our chapter have contributed to launching this program and now we are making a way for area residents and businesses to become involved.”

All donations to Vital Hospitality’s GoFundMe account will be allocated to meals. On average, meal costs are $10 for one individually wrapped meal, delivered to the door of a local medical facility, and $200 for lunch or dinner for an entire hospital department.
