In the wake of historic September flooding that devastated Waverly, TN, Food Network Chef and Nashville Multi-Restaurant Owner Maneet Chauhan stepped up to feed the community. Chauhan, one of Maneet’s four Nashville-based restaurants has flooded since its inception, and she drew a parallel to that flooding while stating that what happened in Waverly was, “difficult to Fathom.” She went on to say that those in the food and hospitality industries have a powerful ability to nourish people on multiple levels. This outlook seems to be what makes Maneet’s involvement with World Central Kitchen and Chefs for America such a natural fit.
