Churros and Hot Chocolate


Chef David Standridge wears a face mask as he fries up churros. During the month of December our on-site restaurant, The Shipwright’s Daughter, partnered with “Stonington Feeds Stonington”.  This local organization was created by a group of area residents amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.  Recognizing a need to support local restaurants and families in need, the program raises money to purchase gift cards from restaurants.  From there the gift cards are given to Stonington Human Services and then passed Stonington families affected by the pandemic. The organization has raised over $38,000 with events as “Churros & Hot Chocolate”.  Gift cards have been purchased from over 30 local restaurants and have provided over 3,700 meals to residents in need.

Chef David Standridge and the team from The Shipwright’s Daughter took to the porch to give back to this organization.  This particular fundraiser aimed to raise funds to purchase Jackie Johnson serves hot chocolate during the Churros and Hot Chocolate fundraiserrestaurant gift cards to be distributed to area restaurant employees.  Selling decadent “Hot Chocolate and Fresh Churros” and accepting donations from the community, Chef and crew raised over $1,000 for restaurant industry colleagues.  While many industries have taken a drastic hit to the pandemic, restaurant workers, who mostly depend on tips from patrons, have seen guest count fall and hours cut.  The Shipwright’s Daughter team was honored to have the opportunity to partner with Stonington Feeds Stonington and give back to the industry and community that has welcomed the new establishment with open arms.
