All-Clad Metalcrafters has donated $75,000 to World Central Kitchen to support the nonprofit organization’s mission of using the power of food to heal communities and strengthen economies during times of crisis and beyond.
The company said it is donating directly to support COVID-19 related hunger relief efforts in the U.S.
“Food insecurity has become more of an issue than ever this year,” said Shivanthi Vannan, vp/marketing, at Groupe SEB USA. “Not only has COVID-19 made it difficult for many families to put food on the table, but it has also completely upended the restaurant industry. Through our work with World Central Kitchen, we are thrilled to support chefs while they help their communities.”
“World Central Kitchen is grateful for All-Clad’s support and belief in our mission. They share our vision that a powerful solution to the ongoing health, economic and humanitarian crises is to work with chefs and restaurants to prepare nutritious meals for food-insecure communities,” said Maggie Leahy, WCK’s director of donor relations. “All-Clad’s donation will contribute to WCK’s Restaurants for the People program which pays restaurants directly to help keep their business afloat while also providing tens of thousands of meals to people in need.”
The collaboration will extend throughout 2021 to celebrate All-Clad’s 50th anniversary by honoring the dedicated chefs who are providing communities around the world with meals in times of need with World Central Kitchen.
