Giving Kitchen Receives James Beard Humanitarian Award

Giving Kitchen is this year’s proud recipient of the James Beard Foundation’s Humanitarian of the Year Award, which is given to an individual or organization whose work in the realm of food has improved the lives of others and benefited society at large. Since its inception in 2013, Giving Kitchen has served more than 2,500 food service workers in crisis while providing over $2.4 million in financial assistance and more than 1,000 referrals to community resources. The heroes behind the nonprofit organization provide stability for the hard-working people of the Georgia food service community and are more motivated than ever to change lives across the nation. The 2019 James Beard Awards Gala will take place on May 6, at the Lyric Opera of Chicago.
