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.
