Gr8 Pasta Push: Second Helpings collects pasta to feed Hoosiers in need

The month of pasta continues! Chef Kathy Jones from Second Helpings was in studio today to prepare Pasta with Italian Beef & Roasted Tomato Sauce and Cheddar Chicken Pasta two dishes that they prepare at their very own kitchen to help those in need!

These are both meals made at Second Helpings.

Each year, Second Helpings prepares over 1.5 million nutritious meals for neighbors in need to more than 100 partner agencies. WISH-TV is proud to partner with Second Helpings for the 2nd annual Gr8 Pasta Push taking place June 3 – June 17, 2021.
