Shoebox Lunches

Nosh & Grog Instagram

Observe the last few days of Black History Month over a delicious meal from Medfield’s Nosh & Grog. Available through the end of February, Chef Chelven Randolph‘s shoebox lunches are reimaginings of the portable meals that African Americans used to pack when they were able to travel freely, but weren’t welcome to eat in many restaurants or food markets along the way. Randolph’s mother, Linda, grew up in the deep south of Florida in the 1960s and he’s recreated some of the flavors that she used to pack into her family’s shoebox lunches that they brought on long road trips to Alabama and Georgia. Come by Monday through Saturday through the end of February to get a great lunch and recall this small way that men and women of the Black community made the most of the obstacles they faced. Check out Nosh & Grog’s IG for more info or give the restaurant a call at 508.359.4100 if you have any Qs.
