They know food and they certainly know each, now a pair of cousins have a better understanding of the Windsor Essex Food Bank Association.

Cousins Semih Ozoglu and Senol Eskici — who have 35-plus years of combined experience in the food service industry — held a grand opening Saturday of their latest venture, Riso Kitchen.

Besides offering gluten-free options at the cafe that features a take-out counter, the two restaurateurs collected donations for the Windsor Essex Food Bank Association.

“Community support for food assistance is always appreciated, and right now as we continue to live with the COVID-19 pandemic, events like this are so important by helping us to continue to feed those in need,” June Muir, chief executive officer of

Unemployed Help Centre and president of the WEFBA, said in a news release. “I am so grateful to Semih and Senol for reaching out and wanting to help us.”

The Canadian Digestive Health Foundation reports that approximately 1 per cent of Canadians are affected by celiac disease, an autoimmune digestive disorder that causes the immune system to react against gluten.

Located at 33 Amy Croft Dr., Riso Kitchen offers a full gluten-free menu, including pizzas, sandwiches, salads, desserts and more.
