Team Hidi 7: February 24, 2019

Giving Kitchen's signature event where the fight for one life became the fight for many. Hidi, this one is for you. 

Team Hidi came about when Atlanta Chef Ryan Hidinger was diagnosed with late-stage cancer in December 2012. It was Ryan’s journey - the groundswell of support by his industry - that ignited the formation of Giving Kitchen. Hidi’s legacy lives through Giving Kitchen and our mission to provide stability to Georgia’s restaurant community.

Giving Kitchen has grown into a pioneering organization that supports an entire industry. Since its inception, Giving Kitchen has provided over $2 million in crisis grants to those in need of emergency assistance. As we look ahead to 2019, we anticipate our need being greater than ever as we grow to serve restaurant workers throughout the entire state of Georgia.

We rely on Team Hidi patrons and auction bidders to fund nearly half of our grant programs for the year. At Team Hidi 6, with YOUR help, we raised over $725,000 - an unprecedented success for Giving Kitchen… Let’s see what 2017 brings!
