STOUGHTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Stoughton first responders got a chance to eat a pre-Thanksgiving meal prepared by a nationally recognized chef as a thank you for their service on Wednesday morning.
Four-time Chopped champion and celebrity chef Stephen Coe prepared a feast for Stoughton's firefighters and police out of his food truck at the Stoughton Municipal parking lot, located next to the Stoughton Police Department.
"It is a labor of love, we don't have to do it, I want to do it, but we do have to do it to show respect cause they put their day their life on the line for us every day so I gotta give back in the way I can and this is one way I can do it," Coe told WBZ's Chris Fama.
Coe fed first responders alongside the Hannon Foundation from a menu he prepared as a way to give back. Turkey leg tacos, pork belly tacos, and lobster quesadillas were some popular items on the menu.
"We're tremendously thankful to have them there, we appreciate them taking care of those that serve this community," said Stoughton Deputy Chief Brian Holmes.
