This holiday season, in the spirit of the folk story, Chef John Howie will be holding his 2nd annual Stone Soup event from 11am to 2pm at 2100 Westlake, in front of the Whole Foods Westlake entrance. The Saturday after Thanksgiving, he invites the Seattle community to come together and enjoy a hearty cup of his Prince Edward Island Chowder Cook-Off trophy winning Coconut Curry Rock Crab and Blue Mussel Chowder, with the purchase of a $10 ticket – of which 100% of the proceeds of go towards the Kick Hunger Challenge. The heart-warming soup will be ladled up by Howie and a host of celeb servers, including former Seahawk Craig Terrill (TNFL Seattle team rep). Like the “villagers” in the story, it will be a celebration of community spirit for Food Lifeline and the hungry people the organization serves throughout Western Washington. Fans are encouraged to pre-purchase tickets at Seastar Restaurant & Raw Bar-Seattle, Vida Wellness Spa, the Pan Pacific Hotel or Whole Foods-South Lake Union, as portions are limited.
John Howie is on a mission to help Washington score big for Food Lifeline and defeat hunger. Never one to sit on the sidelines, the award winning chef/restaurateur is organizing a series of events as part of the "Kick Hunger Challenge" competition sponsored by Taste of the NFL, which has the potential to make a huge difference both nationally and in our local community. Howie, the Seahawks' chef representative for the Super Bowl (as part of the annual Taste of the NFL) is hoping to give Seattle the home field advantage by becoming the top fundraising city, in which case the TNFL will match what is raised locally. Those doubled dollars will go directly to Washington State’s Food Lifeline. The Challenge runs through February 2, 2013.
