Leaving No Kid Hungry

Sometimes statistics can shock us. While all we often hear about is childhood obesity, thirteen million kids in the U.S. struggle with hunger. This is according to Share Our Strength, a nonprofit working to end childhood hunger, which also states that three out of four children come to school hungry, and twelve million kids eat free or reduced-price lunches.

Williams Sonoma teamed up with Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry Campaign to fight this statistic. Their goal is to raise $2 million to help connect children in need to nearly 20 million meals. To help achieve this goal, Williams Sonoma joined forces with prominent chefs, brands and celebrities to design a collection of limited edition, celebrity designed spatulas. Thirty percent of the profit from the retail sales will go to benefiting No Kid Hungry.

Personally, I love fun spatulas – I have two my mom gave me when I got my first place, and they are green with ladybugs on them. They actually are a pop of color in my kitchen today, since I display them in a piece of pottery on my countertop. Although spatulas can just be a tiny part of a kitchen’s accessories, these can make a big difference in a child’s life.

These limited-edition spatulas were designed by the following celebrity personalities and brands:

The American Girl brand

Actress and activist Kristen Bell

Academy award-winning actor and No Kid Hungry National Spokesperson Jeff Bridges

Celebrity culinarian Alton Brown

Chef and author Giada De Laurentiis

Chef Bobby Flay

Award-winning actor Neil Patrick Harris and chef and actor David Burtka

Music superstar Faith Hill

Shake Shack
