STOUGHTON, Mass. — Stoughton police officers and firefighters were treated Wednesday morning to a pre-Thanksgiving meal, specially prepared by a nationally recognized and award-winning New England chef.
Chef Stephen Coe is best known for his victory against celebrity chef Bobby Flay on “Chopped: Beat Bobby Flay” on the Food Network, among other notable accomplishments.
On Wednesday morning, Chef Coe brought his food truck, Lobsta Love, to Stoughton and cooked for the town's first responders. On the menu for the event were pork belly tacos, lobster quesadillas and duck fat turkey tacos.
The event was hosted in partnership with the Hannon Foundation and Feed the First Responders as a way to give back to the town's police officers and firefighters.
"We love doing this. We love showing up and seeing the camaraderie and smiles of the first responders," Chef Coe said. "We get to see them unwind and joke around and it is awesome."
The Hannon Foundation is a nonprofit organization, based in Easton, which assists families in eastern Massachusetts who are in financial crisis due to a parent’s loss of employment or a family member’s medical condition.
"We are appreciative of Chef Coe and his staff, as well as the Hannon Foundation and Feed the First Responders for supporting Stoughton's first responders," acting Police Chief Brian Holmes said. "We are always thankful for the support we receive from the public, which is even more felt and appreciated around the holidays."
