In her memory, we have established The Cary Wheaton Memorial Fund to support work that she cared deeply about: creating equity in the restaurant industry.
“At least two years ago, before the pandemic, Cary said to me, Before I die, I want to do something about racism in the culinary field. It’s not okay that a field I love, that has meant so much to me, has such segregation,” said Mary Cockram, Forge City Works’ longtime grant writer. “She wanted to take the next step and be a model for equity in restaurants here in Connecticut.”
