Ross is the Director of Development for The Friendship Center, a food pantry in Chicago. Previously, he spent two years abroad training in classical French cuisine and holds a culinary arts degree from Le Cordon Bleu – London. He has worked in the corporate world, though his more recent restaurant experience was with small, independent restaurants – including as a sole proprietor for five years of a European cafe near his home on Chicago’s north side.
Now he is devoting himself to the food pantry, seeking funds to keep the place running and occasionally cooking for the guests.
Ross certainly will talk about the influence EHSLI has had upon his life and why he now devotes himself to making sure that people who need food have something good to eat.
