As people hunker down to curb the spread of COVID-19, the question of “What’s for dinner?” is taking on new meaning

We want to help, so we reached out to our team of top-shelf chefs for ideas about what we should stock in our pantries in case of an emergency. They decided to take it one step further, giving us creative and colorful suggestions about what to do with the stash when the need arises for a meal made entirely from what’s on hand.

We’re calling it The Pantry Project, but we know it’s much more. Because no matter how basic, how improvised, how ordinary, how necessary, a meal made at home is a labor of love. One that brings us together and reminds us that food has the power to nourish our bodies and feed our souls.
