Solane Kitchen Hero Chef’s Edition, a cooking competition held last year, showcased talented Filipino chefs from different regions.

Chef Soy from Lanao Del Norte has initiated a food provision distribution for frontliners in his province, including those assigned at the Kapatagan Provincial Hospital and Kapatagan Isolation Facility for persons under investigation, PNP, BFP, and other personnel at the Quarantine Control Points in the municipalities of Lala, Salvador, and Kapatagan.

Meanwhile, in Cebu, Chef Coke partnered with Cocina Collective to provide nutritional snacks for frontliners. Together, they produce and distribute 350 to 700 burgers daily. 

“We have reached out to frontliners in seven hospitals—both private and public—as well as in four barangays, Cebu City police offices, and checkpoint and public sanitation personnel. We aim to do more until this crisis is controlled.”

SKH ambassador Chef Sau, who is  from Pampanga, has been preparing meal packs twice a week for delivery to different hospitals in the province. He called on his colleagues and friends to join his cause, and they are able to procure 500 healthy meal packs per delivery run. 

“Those working in the hospitals are working 12 to 16 hours a day. And we’re here to cheer them on and nourish them,” he said.

Solane provides the chefs’ cooking fuel for free.
