Visual Aid: Chefs for the Polls Hands Out Free Food to Voters at Camelback Center

Visual Aid: Chefs for the Polls Hands Out Free Food to Voters at Camelback Center

The voting center the Camelback Center saw a steady trickle of people around lunchtime on Election Day — some coming to vote, some coming back for more food from The Breadfruit and Rum Bar and Hana Japanese Eatery.

Danielle Leoni, chef and co-owner of The Breadfruit and Lori Hashimoto, chef and co-owner of Hana, and their teams passed over brown bags of Tonjiru (slow-cooked pork shoulder soup) and cups of bright-red ceviche to those exiting the voting center as well as any members of the community who approached the tent.

It was all part of Chefs for the Polls, a nationwide nonpartisan effort that finds Valley chefs, restaurant staff, and volunteers distributing food at eight local polling stations, including this lively spot at 17th Avenue and Camelback Road.
