Cook-up Support for Delaware Valley Families This Summer

Posted by on July 25th, 2013

With summer fun and barbecues in full swing, it can be easy to forget about a key issue we continue to battle in the Philadelphia region – hunger. More than 325,000 children in the Delaware Valley rely on free and reduced meals during the school year. These families need our help to ensure there is food on the table during the summer months. And, Philabundance needs our assistance more than ever, as the Delaware Valley faces a continual increase of families who can’t afford to cover the additional meals.  There are so many ways that you can contribute, whether it’s volunteering or donating food and funds.

At 10 Arts, we’ve just launched a new menu that includes a Philabundance Burger. One-dollar from every ordered burger will go towards fighting childhood hunger. Stop in and try one. Or, check out the below recipe, inspired by the 10 Arts Philabundance burger.  Now’s the time to cook-up support for Philabundance and the many local families that need our help!

Check out this video for a behind-the-scenes look into the 10 Arts Bistro and Lounge kitchen with me as I prepare the Philabundance Burger!

10 Arts


Philadbundance Burger


1 Challah burger bun, cut in ½

1 T. softened butter

8 oz. ground brisket

4-5 slices ½ sour pickle

2 slices of aged cheddar

3-4 rings of shaved red onion

2 slices of jersey beef steak tomato

3 T. shaved romaine

1 T. Dijon mustard

2 T. ketchup

Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions: Season your burger patty well with sea salt and fresh ground black pepper.  Grill to desired temp, making sure to rotate and flip on a regular basis as to avoid over charring your meat.  When burger is almost done, spread a little butter on the cut surfaces of your burger bun and lightly toast it on the grill.  Next, add your slices of cheese onto your burger and allow to melt while seasoning the tomatoes and lettuce.  Once cheese has melted, place the burger patty on to the bottom bun, add your ketchup and mustard and nicely arrange your vegetables on top before finishing with your top bun.  Enjoy!
