Solvera Solutions is teaming up with the Regina Food Bank to try to cook 3,000 pounds of chili for a good cause on Saturday.
The Chili Challenge is a one-day community care initiative across western Canada that aims to feed 10,000 people in need.
If they’re success in cooking 3,000 pounds of chili, it would be the biggest single serving of chili ever made in Canada.
To help break this record, Solvera has refurbished a giant industrial butter churn that holds 800 gallons and weighs 2,700 pounds empty.
“The Chili Challenge is just one day,” said Greg Miller, Solvera Solutions managing director, in a news release. “All of us can make a real and lasting difference by supporting the work of Regina Food Bank every day by volunteering or providing donations.”
The chili making will be guided by Regina Certified Chef de Cuisine Milton Rebello, who is the executive chef at the Wascana, and owner of the Skye Café Bistro at the Saskatchewan Science Centre.
As for the Regina Food Bank, they are thankful to be involved.
“We are truly honoured to be partnering with these amazing community champions,” said Steve Compton, CEO of the Regina Food Bank, in a news release. “With the tremendous support of Solvera Solutions and Chef Rebello, we will make a difference towards fighting hunger and feeding hope in our community”
The big chili reveal is set for around 12:30 p.m.
