It’s Chow Time! FourBlock Live MRE Cook-Along
Produced by Carousso Enterprises, LLC
The FourBlock community was invited to “It’s Chow Time!” — their first-ever live fundraising event and MRE cook-along. This live virtual event streamed on Thursday, October 21st from 7:00 – 8:00 PM ET.
A dynamic group of veterans and veteran chefs had a friendly competition to see who can cook the best MRE using an assortment of spices and condiments they provided and anything they had in their kitchen pantries. This event took the place of FourBlock’s annual in-person reception this year, with the goal of raising funds to support the continued growth of FourBlock’s career readiness programming for transitioning service members, veterans, and military spouses. Viewers also had the opportunity to cook an MRE with the chefs in real-time.
This event is open to all live and now on-demand! We encourage FourBlock students, alumni, military spouses, company hosts and partners, staff and volunteers, family, friends, and the broader military and veteran-connected community to join us. Attendees who purchase a ticket receive an MRE package (complete with FourBlock SWAG) and can cook alongside our participating chefs!
FourBlock and the parents of the late Victoria McGrath also honored Damien Bertolo for his work mentoring veterans transitioning to the civilian workforce.
