Meet our Chefs!

Chef Joe

Along with running the Friday Night Supper program since 2006, Chef Joe McAllister has been instrumental in developing the mission and work of Parish Hall Kitchen since its inception in 2016. He plans and executes community meals every Friday, working with volunteers and trainees who prepare and serve meals to our neighbors. 

Chef Joe has formulated the training program for Trinity Restaurant Training and works for 8 weeks with each trainee. TRT trainees also assist in preparing meals for Friday Night Supper, numerous church functions, catering orders, and eventually orders for Trinity Café. 

Chef Tom

When “Big Chef” Tom Pizzica moved from San Francisco back to his hometown of West Chester, Pa, in 2018 he was excited for a fresh start. Tom started out doing small pop-ups and sandwich drop-offs for local hospitals and businesses. Since Tom has been in a kitchen for over 20 years learning about and cooking every cuisine from Thai to modern steak house, he began gladly fulfilling catering and prepared meal requests for friends and family who needed a break from the kitchen. 

In 2019, Tom got to know the work that PHK was doing, alongside its sister organization, Act In Faith. At the onset of the COVID-19 crisis, he came on board for PHK’s newest program, “Parish Hall Kitchen to Go.” This program originated as a response to even greater needs for food and basic necessities within our community in the wake of the pandemic, providing fresh food and healthy meals to more than 120 adults and children each week. Tom's work with PHK has helped ensure that we will be able to continue serving our neighbors as they struggle to recover from employment and/or housing interruptions and other COVID-19 related difficulties.
