Margaret Steele, CEO of Project Angel Food, adds, "At Project Angel Food, we've always been more than just a meal delivery. Sometimes the only contact our clients have with the outside world is with our staff or volunteers. We deliver more than just meals. We are a community. DELISH is a new opportunity for us to create community with food. Our selection of experts at DELISH will highlight the various processes that make food so entertaining and captivating to us all."
