Food and Medicine bring the heat with wing challenge

By  | 

BREWER, Maine (WABI) - Things were heating up at Mason's in Brewer Thursday evening to support a local nonprofit.

Food and Medicine held a Wing Challenge for a Cause.

Each participant in each heat tried their hand at eating six wings in under six minutes and surviving a six minute burn time.

The wing sauce was specially made with hot peppers that were grown in the greenhouse at Food and Medicine and the Eastern Maine Labor Council.

Organizers say there really wasn't a set goal in mind.

"A lot of it is just getting the name out there and whatever we walk away with, and we'd just like everyone to know we are right down the road and do a lot of great work" said Gordon Provost of Food and Medicine.

A portion of the proceeds will go to support Food and Medicine- a non-profit working to fight poverty in our area.
