We are a non-profit group of professional chefs and restaurant owners who believe all children should have enough food to eat, and the opportunity to learn how to prepare nutritious meals. Working in concert with food vendors and distributors, individual and corporate sponsors, we strive to provide well-balanced meals for kids in need and encourage healthy eating habits.
Chefs Feeding Kids was born from the heart and mind of Chef William Manzo, Jr. Growing up in Providence RI, he witnessed hunger first hand. Many of his peers did not have enough food to eat and he often used to share his lunch with them. It was here the seed was planted for what is now Chefs Feeding Kids.
Today, we’re translating this concern into action by partnering with local elementary schools to educate kids on eating well, providing cooking classes and demos throughout the local community, where family-style dinners are prepared with Chef Manzo’s guidance. In addition, we host several events throughout the year for chefs and food-industry. Through these types of programs, and the efforts of others from around the country, we strive to end hunger in our communities and help America eat healthy.
