12 Making a Difference: Carroll's Kitchen Long Island
Ryan Carroll, of Sayville, is feeding families and helping employ chefs who lost their jobs during the coronavirus pandemic.
His innovative restaurant is a nonprofit movement that also supports other charities.
After losing his job as a chef in New York City due the closures of restaurants from COVID-19, he decided to assemble a team of over 30 of the best hospitality workers to help people across Long Island in a safe and organized manner.
The team at Carroll's Kitchen has fed over 40,000 people in need since March 2020.
They also sell food to the public. All the proceeds go to other charities.
