In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, chefs, restaurateurs, and shop owners all over the city have offered food and whatever help they can to the people in their communities. Here's a roundup of some recent kind acts from the restaurant world:

1) A Facebook update from The Drink in Brooklyn:

3) Chef/restaurateur Sam Hazen of Veritas writes in:

Veritas is closed due to the power issue, but our wines are aging well and we cannot wait to re-open. The saving grace was Mark Pastore from LaFrieda Meats, who was kind enough to take our meats, not to mention send us boxes as well to pack them, send a refrigerated truck, have his driver help us load the truck, bring them back to their warehouse, store them in the walk-in, and deliver them back when we open back up. That is a purveyor and chef relationship that will make any chef smile. Thank you Pat and Mark.

4) The team from Num Pang gave away sandwiches earlier today:
