Much proudly participated in Culinary Care's Corporate Culinary Challenge on October 25, supporting the organization's mission to help families fighting cancer through food and personal connection.

The Corporate Culinary Challenge brings together Chicago businesses and restaurants in a competition to make a winning dish. The Much team worked alongside Chef David Murphy at Mercat a la Planxa to create four different paellas featuring classic ingredients like rice, sofrito, seafood, chorizo, and vegetables.

Brian Crump, an associate in Much's Startups & Venture Capital group and a Culinary Care board member, led the Much team. "This organization does such incredible work for cancer patients and their families, so it's an honor to support the cause," he said. "Food is fundamental to our lives, but when you're fighting cancer, it's the last thing on your mind. Culinary Care provides hundreds of people with delicious meals when they truly need them most."

Founded in 2013, Culinary Care has delivered over 18,000 restaurant-prepared meals to hospitals, treatment centers, and more. Learn more about the organization at
