Big news: we have served over 300,000 meals with #ChefsForPuertoRico! Help us feed others this Friday by dining at over 200 restaurants across the nation as #ChefsUnite for WCK. View the full list at worldcentralkitchen.org/world-food-day. A huge thank you to @fohinc, @zagat, and @baltzco for supporting this event!
In times of disaster you want to help, but it can be hard to know exactly what organizations to donate to and whether or not your funds will actually make a difference. But some of the world’s best chefs have come together to make it a little bit easier to give, all while enjoying dinner with your family.
October 13 is World Food Day, a day when hundreds of chefs and restaurants come together to support a good cause by donating a percentage of their proceeds to World Central Kitchen’s Smart Solution to Hunger and Poverty. This year’s proceeds will benefit the victims of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico. 200 restaurants across the country will be participating in the event, so it’s a great excuse to take the family out to dinner while contributing to the relief effort.
While many of the chefs involved, like Emril Lagasse and Mario Batali, are some of the most elite in the world, there are plenty of family-friendly dining options to hit up. Check out the full listing of participating restaurants in cities across the country, including Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, New Orleans, Chicago and Miami, here.
