Camden Lunchbox near City Hall to serve sandwiches, soups, smoothies

Chef Darrell Gaffin is lending his recipes and expertise to a the Camden Lunchbox.  The kiosk outside Camden's City Hall will serve soups, sandwiches, snacks and smoothies to take out or eat in the park.

CAMDEN — Darrell Gaffin has lived a few lives since he left Camden. But most of them centered in some way around food.

He’s cooked at chains including Red Lobster and Champs. I have lived in Virginia, Raleigh, North Carolina, and Atlanta. I have married and divorced.

He worked as a chef at Duke University and ran a catering business. He worked in restaurant management but missed cooking. He started all over again from scratch as a line cook at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens’ Longleaf Restaurant, learning about farm-to-fork cooking and working his way back to assistant executive chef.

Right now, he’s the kitchen operations manager for CookUnity, a chef-driven meal delivery service. He lives in Atlanta with his girlfriend, a fellow Camden native, and still caters and works as a personal chef.
