Celebrate World Food Day 2017 on Friday, October 13th. Fundraisers will be held worldwide for Puerto Rico relief with World Central Kitchen. World Central Kitchen is a “group of chefs creating smart solutions to hunger and poverty”. It is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
Restaurants and Chefs are coming together for a cause with a number of them pledging to donate 10% of their proceeds on this day to World Central Kitchen.
Chef Jose Andres and his team are doing great work in Puerto Rico helping feed the hungry who have lost access to food due to Hurricane Maria. His efforts continue and this day of fundraising is meant to unite chefs for this cause.
Ciccio Restaurant Group in Tampa Bay has pledged to participate. Their restaurant group operated Ciccio / Water, Daily Eats, Ciccio Cali, Green Lemon, Better Byrd, The Lodge, and Fresh Kitchen. I’ll keep you updated on any restaurants I find in the area participating and also update on social media as well.
