Will You Eat There? Chefs cook with Capital Area Food Bank's most-wanted ingredients

Some of the chefs from our weekly segment "Will You Eat There?" appeared throughout FOX 5 News at 5 and 6 on Friday with Will Thomas, coinciding with our Stuff-A-Truck food drive to encourage viewers to donate food for the Capital Area Food Bank at various Giant drop-off locations. The chefs were asked to create dishes using core ingredients from the list of nine most-wanted items needed at the Capital Area Food Bank. That list includes things like canned vegetables, grains and canned fruit.


Below are the names of the restaurants, links to their Will You Eat There? segments and their recipes for the tasty dishes they prepared on FOX 5.
