Giving Tuesday is Nov. 30 and is highlighted around the world as a reminder to do something good. Those who want to help feed people who are hungry may want to check out Cooks Who Feed. The company ethically produces handcrafted aprons and for every apron sold 100 meals are provided to the hungry. They do this by sharing their profits with charity partners around the globe that recover surplus food to reduce food waste and provide hunger relief. “World hunger is an alarmingly big issue and it’s something that we can all help,” said Seema Sanghavi, founder of Cooks Who Feed. “Our entire mission is to help end world hunger and feed those in need. But we can only do it by people supporting what we do.” According to the World Health Organization, more than 820 million people in the world do not have enough to eat, which is one in every nine people. Another two billion people in the world are considered food insecure. Cooks Who Feed has provided more than 300,000 meals around the world. It has a goal of reaching 500,000 meals by the end of this year. To increase its impact, Cooks Who Feed is now supporting World Central Kitchen, a charity founded by celebrity chef José Andrés, that uses the power of food to nourish communities and strengthen economies through times of crisis and beyond. To support the work done by World Central Kitchen, Cooks Who Feed now offers an apron that was inspired by the chef-led charity. This apron, named Cooks For The World, showcases colours found in the World Central Kitchen logo and its name is based on the charity’s hashtag, #Chefsfortheworld. The apron is fair trade, ecofriendly and handmade with high quality fabrics. With each apron purchased, a $5 donation is made to World Central Kitchen. This is in addition to the 100 meals provided through Cooks Who Feed. “We love that we can help people with their holiday shopping, as well as provide meals to those in need this Giving Tuesday,” added Sanghavi. Also, to encourage children to cook, Cooks Who Feed has also recently introduced a line of child aprons. The new aprons for kids come in three colour combinations and two sizes, fitting ages three to 12. They are 100 per cent nine oz organic cotton canvas, available in one size that fits ages three to seven and one for ages eight to 12. The aprons feature an adjustable neck strap, reinforced stress points, one double pocket below the waist, and a chest pocket.

The company offers individual sales online, a retail line and wholesale/corporate gifting options. The aprons are produced in Delhi, India, where marginalized women are employed to make them by hand.
