On Thursday, Oct. 25, Jason Tostrup, owner/chef of the Free Range Restaurant in Chester, launched his “Eat It Up” community service initiative with a donation to the Chester-Andover Family Center.

Tostrup’s goal is to partner with local organizations that serve the community and provide a percentage of an evening’s restaurant  proceeds to support the work of the organization. More than $250 was raised that evening for the family center.

Tostrup provided complimentary hors’d’oeuvres that made the wait enjoyable. Diners could also check out information about how the Family Center serves the community.
