Meals on Wheels benefits from SoDel's truffle-themed dinners

May 24, 2015

SoDel Concepts recently presented a check for $5,005 to Meals on Wheels Lewes-Rehoboth. The funds were raised during a series of truffle-themed dinners, known as Let There Be Truffles. The events took place April 21-23 at three of SoDel Concepts’ restaurants: Bluecoast Seafood Grill in Bethany Beach, Lupo Italian Kitchen in Rehoboth Beach and Fish On in Lewes.

Since last October, SoDel Concepts has been preparing 360 meals a day for home-bound seniors from Fish On’s kitchen. “We know firsthand how many home-bound seniors Meals on Wheels Lewes-Rehoboth helps every day,” said Scott Kammerer, president and CEO of SoDel Concepts, which in addition to eight restaurants owns Plate Catering, Big Thunder Roadside Kitchen, a food truck, and hospitality management and consulting divisions. “We will do anything we can do to help them continue their good works.”

The multicourse meals at each restaurant featured truffles from Susan Alexander, president and CEO of Black Diamond French Truffles and Susan Rice Truffle Products. “It was really exciting for the SoDel team to create menus all around truffles,” said Doug Ruley, corporate chef for SoDel Concepts. “I think all of the chefs who hosted the Let There Be Truffles event did an amazing job of incorporating truffles into their restaurant’s cuisine while highlighting their own personal style.”
