Everybody needs to eat. It is a necessity in order for us to continue our existence on this earth. It is our body’s fuel.
In fact we don’t just eat because we need to. We love to eat! We enjoy having great food. We willingly pay large amounts in order to have the best possible food. Wouldn’t it be great if at least a portion of the money we spend actually makes a difference in the lives of those who have gone through calamities or truly have great need of help?
If you believe that this is so, then you’ll be glad to discover Chefs for Humanity (CFH). This is an organization of chefs and culinary professionals who work together to raise money and provide necessary resources for important emergencies. They strive to give humanitarian aid and educate about proper nutrition. Of course being involved with food, they have a special interest in providing this basic need to those who have gone through major upheavals such as the tsunami and hurricane Katrina.
There are many ways to take part in Chefs for Humanity’s activities. You can assist at the events, provide graphic design skills, post an entry in your blog maybe even become part of a food service crew. You can help teach good nutrition to schools and communites, maybe even help make some of the food. Why not attend one of the charity dinners that they organize? You get a great dinner guaranteed and you add to the funds the organization raises.
There is always the option for you to donate some funds to their worthy causes. Every amount helps to provide food for more people. Working with organizations like UNICEF, CFH extends their culinary gift all over the world.
