Chefs love to feed people and take pleasure in knowing that those who are eating their creations are enjoying the food. There are some celebrity chefs who go a step further so their talents can help feed the world’s hungry.
That’s what these five celebrity chefs are doing—teaming up with the organization Cooks Who Feed to help those in need, one apron at a time.
How does it work? These five celebrity chefs have joined with Cooks Who Feed to design aprons any aspiring chef would love. The purchase of each apron provides 100 meals for those who need food assistance. The sale of these aprons has already provided over 300,000 free meals to those who need the help.
But that’s not all. The aprons are produced ethically in Dehi, India, where 40 women are employed to make them by hand. The aprons are environmentally friendly, handmade through fair trade, and sustainable. Every time an apron is sold, food waste is rescued and meals are provided. The company does this by sharing its profits with its charity partners around the globe that rescue surplus food to reduce food waste and provide hunger relief.
With so many reasons for gift giving upon us, these aprons check a lot of boxes. You can give a great gift to a family member, friend, hostess, etc., and also help the environment and feed the hungry. At about $65, they’re not inexpensive, but just think of the good you’ll be doing!
Check out this roster of celebrity chefs who help feed the hungry with aprons that make the perfect gift:
