Earlier this year I put together a sound piece about Tastes of Africa, a beloved catering company that has been a part of the Upper Valley community in New Hampshire and Vermont for 20+ years.
According to Friends of Tastes of Africa, "the company recently expanded their kitchen to accomodate a huge new contract to deliver their delicious food to West Point, and to universities and hospitals around New England. The flood happened literally days after completing expensive new electrical work on the new space, which was gorgeous and is now in ruins. They are still working to assess their losses, but they have sustained heavy equipment loss (equipment they own outright) and will need to be replacing things as quickly as possible to fill their orders."
They are looking at the steep number of $150,000 to begin again.
