Giving Kitchen provides emergency assistance to food service workers through financial support and a network of community resources.
Giving Kitchen (GK) is a nonprofit organization that was inspired by an outpouring of support from the hospitality industry when Chef Ryan Hidinger was diagnosed with late-stage cancer in December 2012.
Giving Kitchen's promise to the food service community in Georgia: stability. We fulfill that promise through financial assistance, by creating a hub of community resources and using our influence to help create a restaurant community where self-care is valued above all else.
Food service workers in need of assistance should start with our Assistance Inquiry Form.
If faced with an immediate emergency situation, call 911. If contemplating suicide, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.
