Favorite Phoenix food stories of 2020

We made it. The new year is just around the corner. 

But before we launch ourselves into 2021, a year that will hopefully bring some relief from the ferocity of the COVID-19 pandemic, we wanted to take a look back at some of the bright moments from this year. Because there were indeed some bright spots despite the deaths of thousands of Arizonans, swelling unemployment and numerous other ways the virus has impacted our state.  

These are stories of individuals and businesses around Arizona who lent helping hands when others were struggling. They are stories of how food brought people together during time when we were unable to be physically close. They are stories about resilience in the face of adversity and more. 

Here are 10 of our favorite food and drink stories from around metro Phoenix in 2020.
